21-Day Benefit Mindset Challenge

Date and Time
Thursday November 01, 2018 8:00am - Wednesday November 21, 2018 6:00pm

What is the Benefit Mindset Challenge? 

For 21-days, faculty, staff, & students are invited to practice a small act of everyday leadership (such as express gratitude or an act of kindness).

The only catch - every day, the action chosen must be something new. You may actually have to go out of your comfort zone.

Why take the challenge? 

You may experience surprising & even transformative results, like:

  • By disrupting our routines in life-affirming ways, we build new positive habits that can change the world.
  • The cumulative effect of taking small actions alongside one another creates an upward spiral of well-being. You feel good, others feel good, & everyone becomes more courageous & creative. 
  • Participating in the challenge leads to meaningful conversations about what it means to not only see ourselves as learners, but also as leaders in everyday life.
  • It's a whole lot of fun!

What is a benefit mindset? 

In a benefit mindset, we not only seek to fulfill our potential, but choose to do it in a way that contributes to the well-being of others and society as a whole. We question ‘why' we do what we do and believe in doing good things for good reasons.

A benefit mindset is symbolized by the everyday leader. We believe in creating a good society and healthy ecosystems through our everyday interactions. We are compassionate presences, trustworthy companions, and aware contributors. We are the open-minded and open-hearted ones that show up, see what is needed, and take wise action.

A benefit mindset challenges us to consider how we can position our development within a life-affirming context. It encourages development in service of life. We believe in using our strengths and our development to make valuable contributions to others and the world.

Take the challenge!
