Eduardo Briceño joins the show to discuss his book, the Performance Paradox: Turning the Power of Mindset into Action. He explains that if we focus only on performing, our performance suffers, which is why he coined the term “the performance paradox.” Joe and Eduardo discuss the difference between fixed and growth mindsets, how to avoid falling into the chronic performance trap, and what leaders can do to promote a culture of learning, experimentation, and feedback.
