Leaders Can Help Influence Employees’ Positive Beliefs
In an article published by The Pacific Institute, Young explains how leaders can help employees adopt more liberating beliefs.
“Limiting beliefs have a subtle yet powerful impact on all aspects of work life,” Young writes. These beliefs may cause workers to be overly cautious, or to get defensive about their work. These limiting beliefs inadvertently hold back employees from realizing their full potential.
“Common among liberating beliefs, on the other hand, is their ability to expand our mental, emotional, and relational capabilities. When we enter an alert yet relaxed mental state, our cognitive capacity expands, as we are more apt to see alternative possibilities rather than maintaining a narrow defense of our own views,” Young continues.
