About Arbinger

We Change Mindset, Behavior, and Results

The Arbinger Institute is a global training and consulting firm that helps individuals, teams, and organizations achieve breakthrough results by shifting from the default self-focus we call an inward mindset to the others-inclusive focus of an outward mindset.

In the behavioral approach to organizational transformation, leaders try to motivate or incentivize employees to behave in certain ways. Without a change in mindset, however, newly adopted behaviors won’t stick and results will suffer. On the other hand, organizations that foster the right foundational mindset are able to ensure that employees sustainably adopt those behaviors that drive desired results.

Two Mindsets

Arbinger’s work shows that people and organizations achieve breakthrough results by maximizing the extent to which they work with an “outward mindset,” taking into account their impact on others and focusing on the needs of the organization as a whole.

Our programs and methodology are based on 45 years of research in the psychology of human behavior and motivation, and more than 35 years of experience working with organizations worldwide.
