Matthew Syed Consulting is pleased to announce that the growth mindset psychometric test, Mindset Advantage has been granted registration as a verified psychological test by the British Psychological Society (BPS) Psychological Testing Centre.
What is Mindset Advantage?
Mindset Advantage is a unique psychometric designed to assess growth mindset attitudes and behaviours. This produces a set of detailed reports for individuals, teams and organisations within a development context.
Mindset Advantage has been developed by the team at Matthew Syed Consulting and is grounded in the research of psychologists such as Stanford University Professor, Carol Dweck. Our tool measures respondents against nine core individual growth mindset attitudes and behaviours, plus six core company culture characteristics. The output reports offer professional self-development against benchmarks for individuals and teams plus support wider cultural change programmes within organisations.
Reviewers from The British Psychological Society concluded:
‘Mindset Advantage is a well-developed and well-researched instrument that has the potential to provide valuable information to individuals around their growth mindset. As such, it offers a good measure of growth mindset, both in terms of individual developmental needs and a measure of the manifestation of a growth mindset within an individual’s organisation.’
‘The Mindset Advantage tool…. offer(s) a unique assessment of an area attracting a lot of interest in HR, development and psychology communities.’
