Understanding the Success Mindsets with Ryan Gottfredson on The Remarkable Leadership Podcast

There has been much research focused on what leaders need to be effective. Ryan Gottfredson asked, how do we capture the being element of leadership? In other words, what is the mindset? Ryan is a consultant, professor, and author of Success Mindsets: The Key to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership. Kevin and Ryan both agree that our mindsets fuel our thinking, learning, and behavior. Further, if you don’t have the right mindset, it is more difficult to build your skillsets. Ryan recognizes that logically we know a command and control system does not work and yet studies show 65% of employees want a new boss compared to more pay. He found leaders still struggle, despite the logic, because for most people, our mindsets are something we are not aware of. Ryan is offering a free assessment on his website so you can see where you stand. At the end of the day, we all have room for improvement and Ryan offers suggestions to help us get there.

In this episode, Ryan 1. Defines Mindset. 2. Provides an overview of the 4 primary mindsets.
