Mindset is a simple idea that was discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Dr. Carol Dweck. After decades of research on achievement and success, she put forward a simple idea about mindsets that can make all the difference in the life of a child or an adult.
It outlines why just competence alone (brains and talent) doesn’t bring success. Alternatively, teaching a child to have a growth mindset positively impacts academic performance and instills a positive attitude towards life. Competence combined with confidence, resilience and grit instills in the child the “can do it” attitude which is the “conduit” to unlocking their hidden potential. Dr. Dweck contends that a growth mindset can be taught.
