This workshop prompts a shift to an outward mindset and equips participants with tools to build self-awareness, accountability, and collaboration.

In this workshop, participants learn the difference between an inward mindset (a myopic focus on personal objectives) and an outward mindset (taking into account one's impact on others). They begin to discover the extent to which they have been working from an inward mindset and understand the implications of this mindset on their work and those around them. Understanding of the negative effects of an inward mindset awakens in participants a desire to adopt an outward mindset approach in their work.

This interactive workshop allows participants to thoroughly explore and internalize key concepts in discussions led by an Arbinger-certified facilitator. The course is punctuated by videos, individual and group exercises, one-on-one sharing, and application of the tools to on-the-job situations facing the participants.

Participants will learn to:

  • Regularly assess the impact of their mindset and behaviors
  • Work in collaborative, fulfilling, and effective ways
  • Assess their performance and hold themselves accountable for their impact
  • Positively influence others to change
  • Leverage tools to tackle individual and team challenges and resolve conflicts
