"Well...that's the way we've always done it" is one of the most frustrating statements for leaders and organizations to hear for the reason to not change the way we are doing something. This statement reveals a bigger issue than most might realize once you start to understand the power of learned helplessness.

This episode dives deep into victim-mindsets and how to overcome an individual or team that is locked into learned helplessness.

Learned helplessness is the belief that our actions no longer have impact on our outcomes. It's when we start to believe what we do doesn't matter anyway.

This mindset is the complete opposite of personal accountability and not much happiness can come about when we are living in learned helplessness.

In this episode, I share a personal example of when I realized I was in learned helplessness and some great tips to recognize and quickly step out of this mindset that can hold us back.

So for any leaders wondering:
