Research Description

The Mindset of Corporate Leadership and How Mindset Guides Action
I plan to use a case study of the Enron Scandal to demonstrate how the actions of Jeffrey Skilling represent what Carol S. Dweck describes as both the fixed mindset and risk-taking behavior. I will further delve into other cases of upper-level management that have both fixed and growth mindsets, as well as risk-averse and risk-taking mindsets, respectively and draw links between these mindsets and how they guide corporate behavior.
