Mindset Advantage Diagnostic


Mindset Advantage is the only diagnostic tool available today that is designed specifically to measure and build a growth mindset at an individual, team and organisational level. People’s mindsets manifest as a set of beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that greatly influence the performance of individuals and the organisations they are part of.

Our Mindset Advantage diagnostic has been developed to provide insight to individuals and organisations by measuring their beliefs, attitudes and behaviours associated with a growth mindset.
