It applies to us emotionally and spiritually, and possibly even physically.7:40 Overview of mindsets: Mindsets are the mental lenses we wear that shape how we view the world9:10 What vertical development isThree adult developmental stages that are a function of effort, both horizontally and verticallyElevating our ability to make meaning of our world in more cognitively and emotionally sophisticated ways12:00 Examples of how people in different levels respond to constructive criticism13:45 The three different levelsMind 1.0: Focused on our comfort, safety, and belonging. Self-protective. Dependent thinkers, exchanging power and independence for these needs.Mind 2.0: Focused on being seen, advanced, and getting ahead. Independent thinkers, in self-reward mode.Mind 3.0: Focused on contributing and adding value, externally focused on lifting and elevating others. Interdependent thinkers, able to see from different perspectives and sit with complexity. Only 1% of adults get to this place.20:00 Becoming more like the Savior happens through vertical developmentExample of Mind 1.0 recommendation for seeking informationApproaching teaching from the perspective of vertical vs. horizontal development25:15 The tension between safety and truthExample of people protecting the safety of beliefs in a Sunday School lessonBeing a seeker of truth and learning to sit with complexity instead of becoming defensiveIt is in the interpreting that we connect with God31:05 Leaders operate differently depending on their vertical developmentDo we even allow for a conversation about interpretation?“Aspiring” fits into Mind 2.0Mind 3.0 leaders are focused on creating a culture that is inclusive and allows for growth and development37:25 The culture of aspiring to leadership39:00 How do we go about developing vertically?What makes meaning for us are our mindsetsExample of an inward vs. outward mindset and how it helps us become more like Jesus ChristSeeing others as doing their best: “What has happened to you?” vs. “What is wrong with you?”46:20 Learning acceptance: Healing from our own traumas as we recognize Christ accepting usVertical development involves calming our response so we have a greater toleranceThe new “Sunday School answer”: get to where you can have 100% acceptance before doing anything51:35 When we help people repent we help them change their hearts and how they make meaning with their world, not their behaviors and actions55:00 Where to start57:55 Our vertical development is about healing our minds and heartsLinksSuccess MindsetsRising StrongWhat Happened to You?The Body Keeps the ScoreThe Bonds That Make Us Free

What Every Leader Should Consider About Community in Their Ward | An Interview with Ryan Gottfredson

Leading Saints Podcast

Ryan Gottfredson, Ph.D. is a cutting-edge leadership development author, researcher, and consultant. He helps organizations vertically develop their leaders primarily through a focus on mindsets. He is also a leadership professor at the College of Business and Economics at California State University-Fullerton. He holds a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources from Indiana University, and a B.A. from Brigham Young University. As a consultant, he works with organizations to develop their leaders and improve their culture. Ryan is the author of Success Mindsets: The Key to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership. He has written multiple articles for Leading Saints, including a series of articles on community.Highlights8:10 Where the community articles started9:50 Many people attend church but they don’t feel they fit, or don't attend“What community is and why is it important?” How do we create a community in the church so everyone feels welcome?14:00 There are three community types: basic, involved and united. It is a continuum.14:45 Basic community: little attachment, little involvement, much like an alumni group, few demands and little connection 15:45 Involved community: share more, some emotional connection but still disconnected but not fully accepted, much like a large workplace 17:30 United community: Share interests, goals and beliefs. Strong identification with group much like a family: when they hurt, we hurt. Provides acceptance, love and protection. This is what it should be within the church.20:20 A united community is ingrained deep in the LDS culture and doctrinally founded, but with some negative side effectsLow cognitive diversity. Can't think outside a box, inability to allow different perspectives. This is not doctrinal thought, but community thought. 25:30 Lack of inclusivity. Difficult to allow others in, many feel judged, hard to accept others. Often is unintentional judging over what is/is not socially acceptable (tattoos, piercing). 29:00 Lower psychological safety: When something is different, or comments in class get questioned, others are less likely to share. People feel uncomfortable expressing their opinions. 33:40 "Sometimes we have a stronger desire to be right, than we do to love others."36:20 How do we improve the united community in the Church? We must be "intentional".37:20 Six elements of an intentional communityCharity Safety Openness Inclusiveness Being present Having a clear purpose and common cause38:30 Charity: we must see everyone as people, and value them as such.41:00 Safety: do our members feel safe and able to to comment in class?43:25 Openness: we have a social pressure to certainty. If value is on knowing, we are limiting learning. We don't know all and we can learn from others45:50 Inclusiveness: everyone should feel welcome. Don't let little things get in the way of loving them. Care less about how they look and more about how they feel.47:40 Be Present: we are as involved as we can be, regardless, while we are there in attendance we should be present. Make our meetings matter, provide a value. Intentionally create meetings worth coming to.50:45 Having Purpose: is everyone heading in the same direction?53:00 Cliques are not necessarily bad. Smaller groups may allow more connections with others. Perhaps smaller groups can strengthen the whole community.56:40 Most important to understand what community is and why it is important. Be mindful.LinksRyanGottfredson.comArticles about community in the Church:The Foundation of Belonging Flaws We Need to Recognize and Overcome Becoming an Intentional Community Moving Forward in a Changing Social LandscapeSuccess Mindsets: Your Keys to Unlocking Greater Success in Life , Work, and LeadershipThe Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict,

To start the countdown off, here's the re-release of episode no. 51 with Ryan Gottfredson. "We think that the way we think is the right way to think." - Ryan Gottfredson Was there ever a time when you were so sure that the way you did something was the best way to go about it, until someone came along and showed you an even better alternative? To top it off, were you easy to accept and learn this method, or did you stick to your old ways despite the new information that could have helped you speed up the process? Once we delve into the topic of mindsets, we'll find that the way we view our world shapes how we think about it. There's another level deeper than the way we think that we can change: The way we see. For this week's show, we'll go back to the time I invited Mindset Coach and author Ryan Gottfredson to talk about the different types of mindsets and explain how the way we perceive life fundamentally controls how we think about or react to it. Ryan explains that these mindsets generally dictate the way a person treats a situation, or new information that comes into their view. Once we are aware of how we see things, we can tweak our viewpoint in order to make it work to our advantage.  A good example mentioned on this throwback episode is the difference between the prevention mindset and the promotion mindset. The prevention mindset focuses more on containing the possibility of risk and making sure that any potential danger is avoided. As long as things go smoothly, everything should be fine. The promotion mindset, on the other hand, aims towards taking chances or risks to be able to push closer to their goals. People with this kind of mindset "play to win" and dislike missing opportunities or staying still even with the promise of security from failure. If you had the prevention mindset as the captain of a ship, you'd prioritize making sure that it doesn't sink even if it meant that your journey through the sea would take longer. Meanwhile, a captain who possesses the promotion mindset would take risks sailing into short cuts, even if it meant sailing through rough waters and thunderstorms. Throughout this episode, we discuss these topics and many more helpful mindset-changing tips.  Now a mindset author and mental success coach who successfully published his signature book "Success Mindsets," Ryan Gottfredson works on helping various organizations significantly improve the mindsets of their leaders, members, and teams. A Ph.D. holder in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources from Indiana University with a B.A. from Brigham Young University, Ryan currently prospers as a leadership and management professor at the College of Business and Economics at California State University-Fullerton. ********Topics discussed on the show:******** IntroductionThe Layers of SuccessLevelsHow We Interpret Our WorldHow We View Each OtherMindsets and GlassesMental LensesWhat is a Mindset?Fixed MindsetGrowth MindsetPositive InterventionsChanging Habits For SuccessThe Right QuestionsThe Four MindsetsClosed and Open MindsetsPrevention Versus Promotion MindsetsThe Boat TheoryRyan's MissionInward and Outward MindsetsRyan's Book: Success MindsetsOther Book Recommendations ********Links Mentioned:******** Episode 67 Commit First: https://youtu.be/o5lsu7v5mS4 Success Mindsets: The Keys To Unlocking Success In Life: https://www.amazon.com/Success-Mindsets-Unlocking-Greater-Leadership/dp/1642796913Brené Brown - Rising Strong: https://www.amazon.com/Rising-Strong-Ability-Transforms-Parent/dp/081298580XThe 5 Minute Journal: https://www.intelligentchange.com/products/the-five-minute-journalMindset Assessment: ryangottfredson.comYou are the placebo - Dr. Joe Dispenza: https://www.amazon.com/You-Are-Placebo-Making-Matter/dp/1401944582Mindset - Carol Dweck: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40745.MindsetCreativity Inc. - Ed Catmull: https://www.amazon.com/Creativity-Inc-Overcoming-Unseen-Inspiration/dp/0812993012Principles - Ray Dalio: https://www.principles.com ********You can find Ryan at:******** LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ryangottfredsonInstagram: @ryangottfredsonFacebook: https://web.facebook.com/RyanGottfredsonPhD/?_rdc=1&_rdrHis Website: ryangottfredson.com ********

Ryan Gottfredson, Ph.D. is a cutting-edge leadership development consultant, author, trainer, and researcher. Ryan is the Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author of “Success Mindsets: The Key to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership.” He is also a leadership professor at the College of Business and Economics at California State University-Fullerton. Vertical development vs. horizontal development. Horizontal development is like adding an app onto an iPad - allows us to do more. 95% or more of all development is horizontal. Elevating who we are as a person. Vertical development is upgrading the operating system. At some point in time, we are relevant to the marketplace. 2 things that lead to vertical development - crisis or deep learning We have control over one of those factors. Necessary but not sufficient. There needs to be heat to lead to this happening. child development vs adult development. Child development is a function of their age. 3 main stages of adult development. Most adults do not get past the first stage of adult development. Adult development is a function of effort. Almost all leadership development approaches are rooted in philosophies dated pre–2005 Growth development practices often overlook the mind. Add the mind to our developmental components. The circuit board for the mind is our mindset. Global Neuronal Workplace. How do we work on mindsets? Just talking about other mindsets helps people start to focus Fixed - Growth Closed - Open Prevention - Promotion Inward - Outward Positive desires Trauma can inhibit them from wanting to look inward. When we experience trauma, we try to cut off that pain. Childhood trauma and the impact it has on kids’ ability to learn. Integrating the mind is a form of vertical development. Someone is more likely to leave if they don’t feel like the system is open to change. Focus on what is being measured. Lagging indicators are test scores. Leading indicators. Which is better to focus on? Personal mindset assessment. There is no time that vertical development is more important than right now. Those who have navigated well, have vertically developed well.

114: The Importance of Mindset for Managers with Ryan Gottfredson

The Modern Manager

Mindsets are powerful because they deeply impact our view and approach to managing a team. Yet, we are often unaware of the mindsets we hold and how they may be undermining our intent. When you understand a mindset and the fears, desires, and assumptions that it is grounded in, you can better align that mindset with your values and goals.  In this episode, I speak with Ryan Gottfredson. Ryan is a mental success coach and cutting-edge leadership consultant, author, trainer, and researcher. He is the author of "Success Mindsets: The Key to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership," and a leadership professor at Cal State Fullerton. He has a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources from Indiana University. Ryan and talk about what mindsets are and how they impact us as managers, the four typical manager mindsets that might actually be holding you back, how vulnerability comes into play, and how to begin shifting your mindset.

Be part of the research for my next book - schedule your 45 minute interview at www.managerialgreatness.com Read the related blog article: The Four Human Desires that Undermine Great Managers Key Takeaways: Mindsets are the mental lenses that we wear that shape how we see the world and how we behave. How you approach a situation can make all the difference. Consider what happens when you view someone as not trying vs doing their best. Intention and impact are not the same. A lack of awareness of your own mindsets can lead to negative impact, even if unintentionally. 60% of employees say their manager damages their self esteem. Managers, and humans, typically have four desires that can undermine their ability to be great managers. These desires are (1) to look good, (2) to be right, (3) to avoid problems, and (4) to get ahead. These desires stem from self preservation and are associated with four negative mindsets: (1) fixed, (2) closed, (3) preservation, and (4) inward. We can replace our negative mindsets with positive ones: (1) instead of looking good, seek to grow, (2) instead of being right, seek truth, (3) instead of avoiding problems, aim to achieve goals, and (4) instead of getting ahead, strive to lift others.  You must be willing to be vulnerable because in order to develop these success mindsets, at times you will look bad, be wrong, have problems and get past up. When managers struggle with vulnerability, they tend to develop a command and control style. This creates an unhelpful situation where team members are unhappy but don’t feel comfortable speaking up. To become more aware of your mindsets, do the following 4 steps: (1) Identify a goal, (2) Reflect on what you are doing, or not doing, that is inhibiting your from achieving that goal, (3) identify the underlying fears, commitments, and assumptions, are holding you back, and (4) connect these to the negative mindsets or desires so that you can begin shifting them. When you are aware of your negative mindset, you can begin to change your outlook and therefore your behavior.
