About Dr. Eve Meceda
The Art + Science of Awesome
I'm a research psychologist by training, and most of my career has been spent working with organizations around the world to help make them more awesome, which I define as: more financially successful, more innovative, more competitive, and more fun.
Much of my work focuses on the power of Growth Mindset - and how we can shift towards this Mindset at both the individual and organizational level. Growth Mindset focuses on an obsession with learning, challenge, feedback, experimentation, innovation, and improvement. Mindset is a strong driver of high performance in organizations - and it also happens to be a vastly more fun way to run your business and live your life.
Prior to becoming a Growth Mindset nerd, I spent many years working in a variety of research and consulting firms, partnering with Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies on issues such as leadership development, employee engagement, performance management, and the attraction and retention of high-potential employees.
I have a Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Michigan and am also a published author, award-winning professional speaker, and passionate international traveler who's grateful to live and work in the beautiful areas surrounding Denver, Colorado.
What I do
The Power to Transform Your Business and Your Life
My approach to Mindset begins with a deep understanding of the concepts of Growth Mindset and Fixed Mindset, as explained by fellow research psychologist Carol Dweck in her best-selling book, "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success."
My own work with organizations in this space modifies and expands upon the original research by investigating how Mindset applies in business and professional contexts. A key focus of my work is identifying the most effective levers of Mindset change, both at the individual and organizational level.
As the Vistage Speaker of the Year, I recently delivered a TED-Talk-style session on Mindset to 700+ leaders from around the world at the ChairWorld conference in San Diego, California.
