Stepping into the Spotlight: The Growth Mindset

A session with Lydia Amoah - award-winning business coach and one of Britain’s leading authorities on inclusion, diversity and equity

An inspirational and interactive workshop aimed to showcase some of the most exciting, topical and relevant D&I initiatives in the UK’s creative industries.

Now in its fourth year, the IPA Stepping into the Spotlight series offers mid to senior level adlanders an array of tools and strategies to help turbo boost your skills and confidence, and in turn transform your belief in yourself and motivate you to take your career to the next level. We bring you vibrant, inspiring women from the creative industries to talk about what gender equality means to them.

For the next four Stepping into the Spotlight sessions we have partnered with Lydia Amoah - award-winning business coach, author of the Black Pound Report and one of Britain’s leading authorities on inclusion, diversity and equity. Lydia’s first session will help you understand how to develop a growth mindset and crucially how to recognise when you slip back (as we all do) to the shackles of a fixed mindset.

This interactive session will provide you with:

  • A more active and responsive approach to your feedback – both that which you give yourself and that which you actively seek from others – and using that feedback to reflect and grow
  • The ability to recognise and act on the triggers that drag you back into a fixed mindset
  • The confidence to stretch yourself to pursue exciting development opportunities that may be out of your comfort zone
  • Understand your inner psychology and know how to negotiate with yourself
  • Tips and tricks so you feel a richer sense of who you are and how you want to move forward
