*Achieving Mastery and Success Through Growth Mindset
Perseverance, Growth Mindset, Deliberate Practice
Decades of research has led Psychology Professor at Stanford University, Carol S. Dweck, to identify people with two types of mindsets – fixed mindset and growth mindset. People with fixed mindset believe that talent and intelligence are predetermined by nature and in finite supply, while people with growth mindset believe that everyone has the capacity to grow, develop and improve their intelligence and ability over time through deliberate practice.
This is validated by advances in neuroscience on brain plasticity, which indicate that brains do change physically, functionally, and chemically throughout our lives and the changes are manifested through our abilities. Our brains are malleable and can be strengthened for further growth and development at all ages through mental exercises, much like how physical exercises can build muscles. The converse is true. Neural pathways that are underused will weaken or be replaced over time.
Professor Dweck’s studies revealed a significant correlation between how people thought of their own talent and its impact on their motivation, effort and approach to problems and issues. Growth mindset is not about feeling positive / good about oneself or motivating others through positive psychology. It is about believing that everyone can improve and achieve mastery through perseverance and deliberate practice. It is not just about effort (that success will come to all who work hard), but growth. It is about the ability to learn, unlearn and relearn in a myriad of situations and the determination to continue pushing the boundaries to improve. When individuals and companies are focused on growth, potential can be unleashed and mastery / success within grasp.
This programme is intended to help individuals and companies learn, unlearn and relearn to achieve mastery and growth.
A compelling experience for leaders to enable teams in organisations to accelerate growth and change. Combining knowledge, process, skillset and mindset, participants discuss, explore and apply tools and techniques to real business challenges during the inter-sessions.
