Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has a clear vision for the culture he wants to create in order to achieve our company wide mission, and it centers around the idea of a growth mindset.

As an organization focusing heavily on growth and transformation, we’re constantly striving to set goals – and the New Year provides the perfect opportunity to make a plan for finding professional growth. According to a study from John Norcross of the University of Scranton, a New Year’s resolution has ten times more stick-to-it power than a promise made any other time of the year.
But even so, achieving change and growth can still be a challenge. The Washington Post reports that up to half of us will make New Year’s resolutions this year, but only half of those who do will succeed at keeping them for at least six months.
To help you successfully build and develop your own growth mindset in 2016, we asked our team of contributors for their thoughts and tips to help you start (and keep) your best resolutions yet:
