I think personal efforts are the start, but i also have seen what a big difference a "growth mindset" can make in a team. is the team as a whole willing to jump in to new areas? is learning encouraged, is there a buddy system, is time made for experimentation (as opposed to time found). when it becomes part of the culture, the team is unbeatable, and becomes the...er.."winningest"
