November Parent Learning Event

 Mindset is a simple idea discovered by Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck from decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships.

Learn about:

  • What is a mindset?
  • Difference between Fixed and Growth Mindsets
  • Methods for instilling growth mindset in children
