Over a decade of research from the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business revealed that all successful innovators have one thing in common - they demonstrate a specific set of observable behaviors that reveal six unique mindsets. Adopting these mindsets allows them to make a greater impact in whatever they do.
The Innovation Mindsets Assessment allows you to measure your behaviors to indicate your prevailing innovation mindset. It is not a profiling diagnostic tool which defines you as a ‘type’, but rather an indicator of your current mindsets and behaviors. This knowledge will help you hone in on where you have the greatest opportunity to leverage your strengths and develop your mindsets to become a more effective, well-rounded innovator.
Read each question carefully before answering. While completing this assessment, think about your day-to-day behavior in your work or learning environment. If you’re struggling to answer, think about what your peers might say about you.
