This paper looks to help to put structure and definition to the ambiguity in the market and help leaders to target the right solutions at the right time during the change curve response.

The ‘change curve’ comes from the work of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (On Death and Dying, 1969) and was adapted for organisational and social change. The curve explores the thinking and feeling journey that people go through as a response to change.

When change is imposed or received by people not involved in the design of change, humans will go through this change curve response. Mindset solutions are intended to flatten the curve and accelerate people through it but this only works if the mindset solutions are delivered at the right time along the curve

The research and this document explores 7 different types of mindset development and support. Throughout any change process, all of these mindset solutions are in demand and required by leaders and employees alike.

However, what we see is that we need to specifically ‘dial up’ specific support at specific times such as reacting, responding to or driving change.

0. Pre-Change – Disciplined Care

1. Leadership and Team care

4. Growth Mindset

5. Thriving Under Pressure

The Mindset Index

Each mindset solution is useful, but some are more useful than others at certain times, and need ‘dialling up’.

Leaders cannot force people through the curve or jump straight to high performance, they can only enable.
