Qualifies for SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) and HRCI Recertification Credits


Limited to 50 Senior Practitioners

Mindset (mahynd-set) n. a certain set of beliefs and assumptions held about human nature.

One of the hottest leadership topics on the market right now, a leader’s mindset affects every business decision. In this highly interactive, full-day session designed specifically for executives, you’ll dive deep into the psychology behind two mindsets: growth vs. fixed, and unlock your potential through experiential exercises.


Based on Professor Kray’s original research in this area, and her work with executive teams at companies such as StubHub, Intel, Adobe and Google, you’ll evaluate your own leadership mindset and establish tools for accelerating team dynamics. Participants will receive a complimentary copy of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck.
