Growth Mindset

Over many years of research Professor Carol Dweck, Ph.D. of Stanford University, has developed a concept of growth and fixed mindsets. A growth mindset is the belief that we can develop our abilities, including our intelligence with persistence and effort.  A fixed mindset on the other hand, is the belief that our abilities cannot be changed, that we are born with a certain capacity that cannot be exceeded. The mindset that we adopt can distinguish our behaviours, attitudes, capacity to learn and ultimately our achievement. In fact research has shown that children with a growth mindset seek better learning strategies, work harder, persevere despite setbacks, and achieve higher.
