Training series to help develop an ‘outward mindset’ begins in March

The 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). According to the institute, when one shifts from an inward mindset to an ‘others-inclusive outward mindset’, the change is transformative and an outward mindset can improve work performance, spark collaboration and accelerate innovation. 

“I used the actionable steps in this training to enhance my personal and professional life,” said Debbie Eidson, director of ticketing systems and data analysis at the Morrison Center. “I recommend this interactive training to anyone, especially for members of teams who are experiencing conflict or culture change.”

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 Mar. 28 and 30, and Apr. 4 and 6. The cost is $225 per participant and includes access to the training’s Digital Ecosystem. Participants will also have access to two digital 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.
