Evidence is mounting that raw talent isn’t enough to propel growth. For that, you need a mindset that if people learn, they can grow.

Continuous learners embrace unfamiliar new subjects to gain an edge. Those who believe that talent is a fixed, innate ability see life as a test and constantly seek validation.

Both leadership types help businesses grow, but those with a growth mindset, who believe that abilities can be learned, hunt for new experiences. They’re more entrepreneurial.

Those who believe that abilities are fixed avoid new experiences and stick to a pattern. They’re more likely to bog down in analysis and fail more often on startups.

Lesson: Growth leaders push the boundaries of their experiences and never rest on their laurels.
