This episode is all about personal growth, reflecting on our experiences, and broadening our perspectives. We’ll be talking about everything from overcoming a fixed mindset to systemic issues and how privilege plays a role in our society.
Plus, we’ll be sharing some tips and tricks for job hunting and personal development that we’ve picked up along the way.
Acknowledging Privilege and Systemic Issues
Rochelle highlights the significance of acknowledging privileges, such as white male privilege, heterosexual privilege, and more. She emphasises the need to be aware of the strengths and currencies of different privileges. As well as how they impact our lives and interactions with others.
Adopting a Growth Mindset instead of a Fixed Mindset
The idea of a growth mindset stands out as another crucial topic discussed in this episode. Rochelle explains that a growth mindset is about being open to learning and trying new things. Unfortunately, it is not always taught or encouraged from an early age, often leading to fixed mindsets that limit our potential.
Overcoming the fixed mindset requires unlearning and adopting new attitudes, which is essential for personal and professional growth.
Embracing New Experiences
Rochelle shares her personal experiences and provides invaluable advice for personal and professional growth. She encourages listeners to have the confidence to learn new things, even if they initially lack expertise. Rochelle shares a valuable tactic she learned from a former manager, where applying for a job with 70% of the requirements and learning the rest can open doors and lead to unexpected opportunities.
