Moving from agile to being agile requires a mindset that is focused on growth, learning new things, being open to feedback and learning by being inspired. This will be a growth mindset called, in contrast to a fixed mindset who wants to leave everything as it was.
A mindset is something challenging, because:
I like it the way it is
Gets frustrated and gives up quickly
Think that potency is predetermined and cannot be influenced
Takes feedback personally
Feels threatened by the success of others
I learn a lot of new things
Keep going in the face of setbacks
Sees effort as the path to improvement
Learns from feedback
Learns and is inspired by the success of others
I have positive influence and impact
Grows from setbacks
Uses ownership as a key to success
Actively invites feedback in both directions
Inspire and be inspired
We find a growth mindset not enough yet because a growth mindset it is mainly about learning from others and not yet enough about taking steps yourself - with impact.
Our mindset is therefore YOWYO! 'You Own What You Observe'
In other words, 'You own what you observe.'
When you notice something, you simply can no longer 'un-discover' it.
You have the choice to do something with those observations, which is… to take ownership.
The YOWYO! mindset is about taking action, ownership, freedom and above all trust. Understanding this mindset and learning to use it will help you develop your competencies and leadership skills.
