Fostering a Growth Mindset: In Your Students and Yourself

Posted on

Much has been written about the concept of a Growth Mindset, based on the seminal work of Dr. Carol Dweck at Stanford. The research is clear. Individuals with a growth mindset – that is, who believe that intelligence and talent can be developed – do better than those who think that talent is innate and that intelligence doesn’t change much.  The concept is deceptively simple and doesn’t provide everything we need to change our own mindsets and foster a Growth Mindset in our students and children and within our organizations. This webinar explores how to model a Growth Mindset; how to foster a Growth MIndset with students, children and others; strategies for increasing intelligence; and what it really means to praise the effort and not the outcome.
