New training series cultivates ‘outward mindset’

Ones mindset is powerful and determines how they see work, relationships and the world. Arbinger Institute’s training “Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset” guides participants from an inward mindset (focusing on self) to an outward mindset (focusing on others). Proponents of the theory say leading with an outward mindset can improve performance, spark collaboration and accelerate innovation.

This training will help participants: 

  • Understand inward and outward mindsets 
  • Overcome a self-focused inward mindset and move toward an others-inclusive outward mindset
  • Help clarify a person’s role and hold them accountable
  • Assist teams to plan, work and resolve differences more collaboratively and effectively
  • Influence others to change

The training is a total of 16 hours and will be facilitated in four sessions from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 8, 10, 15 and 17.  The cost is $225 per participant and includes a course workbook and two books: “The Outward Mindset” and “Leadership and Self Deception.” The course will be taught by Keith Quatraro, a certified Arbinger Institute instructor and human resources trainer.
