I first heard of Ryan Gottfredson when I was reading an article in a training magazine about leadership and mindsets. I immediately went to his website and took the mindset assessment that he created. I was really impressed with the custom report that I received that detailed how my responses measured up against others who had completed the assessment. If you plan to read this book, you should take the assessment first so that you can reflect as you read on the areas where you have the biggest opportunity to grow. What I learned is that the way I think today, impacts the decisions that I make and the way that I interact with other people both personally and professionally. What resonated the most with me is that it isn’t my personality or what I have or don’t have that prevents me from getting where I want to go: it’s how I perceive challenges, failures, and success. This is a great read with some engaging storytelling, and Gottfredson also shares some of his own humbling experiences that inspired him to build this powerful framework.
I want to buy a copy of this book for everyone in my office, not because I think they all have negative mindsets but because I believe this book empowers people to learn more about themselves and others.
