Managing Trust


The latest statistics show a flat-lining trust in business along with more calls for regulation—in spite of steadily dropping confidence in government officials and their ability to get this done. These trends should be a wake-up call for every business. As Richard Edelman explains, you need to stop worrying about competitors and start worrying about the Public—your biggest barrier to acceptance of new products.

Carol Dweck
Professor, Stanford University

Mindset, Motivation and Leadership


People are fairly evenly divided between those with either a growth or a fixed mindset about intelligence and talent. And leaders’ mindsets, Professor Dweck shows, influence their ability to grow on the job and to develop successful teams. Leaders with a growth mindset (who assume talents can be developed) place high value on learning, are open to feedback, and are confident in their ability to cultivate their own and others’ abilities. Leaders with a fixed mindset (who assume basic talents are carved in stone) place greater value on looking smart and are less likely to believe that they or others can change.
