growth mindset

Unlike a fixed mindset, which views abilities as innate and unchangeable, A growth mindset sees potential as malleable through effort, perseverance, and learning. This mindset fosters resilience in the face of challenges, as setbacks are viewed as opportunities for growth rather than signs of failure. Individuals with a growth mindset embrace feedback, seeing it as a chance to improve rather than a critique of their abilities.

Developing a growth mindset is important for personal and professional success.

A growth mindset cultivates a love for learning and exploration. It encourages you to step out of your comfort zone, to take risks, and continuously seek opportunities for self-improvement.

In the workplace, a growth mindset fosters innovation, collaboration, and adaptability, essential qualities in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world. Ultimately, by embracing a growth mindset, individuals unlock their full potential, leading to greater fulfillment, resilience, and success in all aspects of life.

Carol Dweck researches ‘growth mindset’ — the idea that we can grow our brain’s capacity to learn and to solve problems.

In this talk, she describes why rewards for success are often counter-productive. Rather than win-lose marking, she says, it is better to rate and recognise kids’ efforts for how they approach a problem, not, whether or not they get it ‘right’.
