Respond to a Classmate down below:
To create a growth mindset, I would first let my employees know that all of them are very valuable to me, and without them doing their job, none of this would be possible. Praising the employees and letting them know that they are essential will hopefully convince them to do their job and beyond. I will also make sure to let them know about the opportunity for advancement. I would give them bonuses and rewards for them striving to be better. I would have a meeting every Thursday to make sure that I am doing all I can as their Leader so that they can do their best. I would also work just as hard as them because sometimes you have to lead by example.
