They have a growth mindset. They also happen to be hugely successful in their field. Coincidence?
Professor Dweck’s Mindset theory is catching fire in the UK as more and more teachers, sports coaches, lecturers and business people realise that a growth mindset can be the foundation for positive learning.
In terms of academic accolades, Professor Dweck is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and has held professorships at Harvard and Columbia Universities.
In broader terms, she changes lives. Her theory of human intelligence is simple but powerful: it has the capacity to change even the most determinedly grounded of opinions. Dweck informs us that we are not born with a fixed level of intelligence, we grow it in direct relation to how much, and how well, we use it. She provides the science behind:
“There’s no such thing as can’t”
Pupils with the growth mindset see their talent as a starting point: their first dot on an ever-expanding piece of art. The only way it can ever become a masterpiece is through effort and practice. Their masterpiece will not handed to them with a ribbon on at birth.
With a growth mindset, pupils, staff and you can realise the vast possibilities that lie ahead.
