This is my first face-to-face workshop since year 2020! Thank you Lord Stow for having me to take part in the beginning of their 2023 journey.
The workshop was originally designed by Cecilia Yeung and was fully tested during Covid time for participants to review their past year and to prepare for a new year of possibilities with a new mindset, which we also recently delivered two hybrid sessions to HKUST. The idea is to focus on setting our INTENTION instead of setting specific goals for the coming year.
We all have an amazing ability to be resilient and adapt to change. This capacity was truly tested during the last few years. As another year of unpredictable change fades into the rear-view mirror, January is an opportune time to converge sharpened focus, and prepare for new possibilities in 2023.
What is an Evolutionary Mindset?
Inspired by Carol Dweck’s “Growth Mindset” and Adam Grant’s “Think Again”, this workshop will guide participants through a reflection process for the achievements, challenges, and lessons learned in 2022, and a model to develop a divergent mindset in preparation for a new year ahead.
A growth mindset enables us to learn and adapt. However, in a post covid environment, a growth mindset may not be enough. We need to be more advance, agile, and alert. An evolutionary mindset is not only about being amenable to change, but it also expects change as a constant companion, and evolves quickly and adeptly. People with this elevated mindset will already be a few steps ahead and be able to respond to change with the 4 C’s: confidence, calm, certainty, and control.
Running this workshop is very meaningful as it brings back a lot of memories and the journeys we have been through. It reminds us about the learnings from our success and failure, and guides us to look for our beacon even in the current foggy weather.
Thank you again for this opportunity to collaborate with this amazing group. You are always very engaged, fun and creative to work with.
