👥 Evolving Team Member Mindsets

Author: Christian Scott & Blake Shalem

When reflecting on the various cultures in the workplace today; there are some mindsets and values that reflect more of a “Traditional” environment, and others a more “Scalable” environment.

For most organizations, people are their greatest asset and greatest liability. Without an environment that can foster the maximum personal and professional growth of each team member, an organization may face issues with attracting and retaining talent. Regardless of size, or industry, organizations are challenged more than ever to be innovative, agile and resourceful as they grow. Below are some key “mindset” and “culture” traits from a “Traditional” perspective vs a “Scalable” perspective that we are passionate about and feel are important for establishing a productive & mission-driven work environment.
