SE-Radio Episode 238: Linda Rising on the Agile Brain

Filed in Episodes by on September 11, 2015 18 Comments

Linda_Rising_Color100-125Johannes Thönes talks to Linda Rising, author, speaker and independent consultant, about the Agile Brain. They start by talking about the fixed, talent-oriented mindset and then contrast with the learning-oriented mindset. After establishing the terms, Linda explains how we know which mindset we are in currently and how we can change it for us and others, for instance, by offering praise in the right way.

In the second part of the interview, they discuss why scientific experiments would be necessary to improve our work, and how we can port some of these practices in our daily work — for instance through retrospectives.

This episode was recorded one day before Linda’s 73th birthday.

Venue: Krakow, ACE! Conference
