You might be familiar with the title of Arbinger’s foundational workshop, Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset—but what does this event entail?
Focused on improving organizational results, increasing collaboration and raising employee viewpoint scores, the workshop is the foundation of transforming organizational culture. Drilling deeper than solely behavioral solutions, the implementation of an outward mindset culture lays the foundation for success.
While the introduction of new policies, procedures, reporting relationships and organizational structures can be helpful, they don’t directly address the underlying factors that will allow for the true development of an organization’s leaders and transformation of an organization’s culture. In addition, these steps—if imposed and not invited—can create more of the resistance such measures aim to overcome. This resistance is the primary reason change initiatives fail to produce the desired results.
In this workshop, participants learn the difference between an inward mindset (a focus on personal objectives) and an outward mindset (taking into account their impact on others), and begin to see the extent to which they have been operating and leading from an inward mindset. With an understanding of the negative effects of an inward mindset, this discovery awakens within participants a desire to adopt an outward mindset approach in their work.
The collective application of an outward mindset with individuals throughout the organization enables breakthrough results. Organizations which make this fundamental shift experience substantial and sustainable improvements in key areas such as leadership development, team effectiveness, customer satisfaction, change management, collaboration, and conflict resolution.
The workshop equips participants with a set of tools, frameworks, and maps that will enable them to:
- Deeply understand the two underlying mindsets and their implications on results
- Learn to honestly assess—on an ongoing basis—the extent to which they are working with an inward mindset
- Learn to work in a way that is more collaborative, fulfilling and effective
- Positively influence others to change and how to correct without resistance
- Leverage tools and frameworks to avoid and resolve conflicts
- Become deeply accountable for their impact on others
