About the class
This one hour course will introduce the concept of Growth Mindset. Growth Mindset is a term developed and popularized by Dr. Carol Dweck. Dr. Dweck’s research let her contrast a Fixed Mindset and a Growth Mindset and demonstrate the impact of mindset on actions, impacts and results. Her key insight is that we can help ourselves and others to choose a Growth Mindset framing in order to improve our own results and improvement.
