Embracing Complexity: Individuals

Nilofer Merchant (in conversation with Carol Dweck) wants to challenge smart and talented leaders, those ‘in the know.’ Here are a few choice quotes:

“[W]hat if you don’t [know]”? What changes?

The things you know today are not enough. Facts change, new challenges arise, and so you can never think, “I know this” and call it done.

The growth mindset then is about your ability to adapt to a world of changing circumstances.

You have to be wedded to a definition of success that says we will figure it out, and keep figuring it out.”

An embrace of complexity for leaders, for workers, for us all.
