The biggest threat to building an engaged workforce in 2017 is employee burnout.” – Dan Gouthro, Kronos, Inc.
Burnout results in higher turnover, lower performance, and challenges with recruitment and morale.To help solve this problem, many companies are turning to the work of Carol Dweck at Stanford University focusing on Growth Mindset. Dweck and her cohort have unlocked the code to why some people persevere and succeed long term while others get permanently off course when faced with life’s setbacks and challenges. Now, companies like Merlin Works are activating this research by combining it with the most resilient of art forms: Improvisational Theater.
