Popular crowd-sourced local review website, Yelp!, invited Ana Melikian, PhD. and host of The Huffington Post featured podcast Mindset Zone, to facilitate a Fireside Chat for the employees of their Scottsdale Office in Arizona. This event took place on February 17th and focused on how to identify mindset blind spots and self-limiting beliefs, as well as how to expand possibilities.
Melikian led an exercise on the topic of self-limiting beliefs, where the Yelp! staff experienced their visual blind spots.
“This exercise shows that we are able to see things that are not really there,” Melikian says.
Melikian uses this experience as a metaphor, explaining most people have mindset blind spots that limit how they see themselves as capable of facing new challenges or not.
Melikian also shared the work of Dr. Carol Dweck on Fixed and Growth Mindset.
After this introduction to the Mindset Zone framework, the rest of the event was opened to Q&A.
Several examples and references where drawn from the Mindset Zone podcast, which can be found at http://mindset.zone/info.
Melikian says Yelp! employees were all very engaged with the conversation, and asked for further resources to help them explore this topic.
