When employees possess a growth mindset, they embrace learning, and they don’t fear failure. As a result, they are able to take beneficial risks, recover more quickly from set­­backs and continuously improve themselves.

The good news is that you can help employees to develop a growth mindset by responding to challenges and failure with phrases like these:

•  “What other strategies would work?”

•  “Plan A isn’t working. Let’s come up with a Plan B.”

•  “Let’s tackle this from another angle.”

•  “Why did this fail? What could we have done, if anything, to make it work?”

•  “What strategy has a better chance of succeeding?”
