Dani Rius


Leading a successful business and team requires an ability to be flexible and adaptable to the frequent changes and uncertainty we are experiencing today. But even if you are clear that flexibility of mind, or agility, is necessary to make changes, how to achieve this is less evident. It takes a whole team to be responsive to frequent changes experienced today. Developing a growth mindset allows for a safe environment to create a culture where people strive to learn and improve, open to creating new and better outcomes to keep your business activities relevant for today’s world.

Dani will present cutting edge research and case studies that will broaden your mind. Through practical exercises you will learn how to develop plans that will train you to create an environment of growth for your team to adopt necessary changes to survive and thrive in today's landscape. 

As a result of learning to develop the growth mindset, you can expect to be able to foster collaborative relationships, team accountability, trial and error and share successes and failures to improve your team’s ability to thrive in the 21st century.
