Eduardo Briceño: The Transcript

About: “Two of our human superpowers are our abilities to learn and collaborate, which we all once knew well. As kids, we are naturally curious explorers, experimenters, and tinkerers. But somewhere along the way, we learn to suppress these instincts and get trapped in the grind. For me, it seemed to be working. It led me to an Ivy League school, majoring in engineering and finance, and getting a high-paying job on Wall Street. From the outside, everything looked wonderful, but at what cost? Inside I felt empty, stressed, and inauthentic. Eventually, I became physically sick. At first, I worked through the pain. But when I kept getting worse, I discovered that other people further along in my condition, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, had lost the use of their hands. I realized I couldn’t take my hands for granted and that I needed to become a good steward of my life. I needed to make a change. So, I left my job in venture capital and went to graduate school at Stanford to pivot into social entrepreneurship. It was there that I met professor Carol Dweck, learned about her work, and ignited my devotion to growth mindset. For the first time in my life, I had a sense of purpose. I was off the hamster wheel, and no longer following a path set by societal pressures. I co-founded Mindset Works, the first company to provide growth mindset development services. I had the privilege to serve as its CEO for 13 years, helping introduce growth mindset to the world. Now, I bring this work to workplaces across the globe. Companies have a lot to benefit from developing learning cultures. They perform better, are more likely to become leaders in their sectors, and can adapt in the face of adversity. Their employees experience greater well-being and are also transformed. To help evangelize a growth mindset, I got out of my comfort zone and began public speaking, until it became my full-time job. For someone who grew up a strong introvert, being very uncomfortable speaking one-on-one with anyone, this was quite unexpected.” Source Link –
