After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University
psychologist Carol S. Dweck discovered a simple but groundbreaking
idea: the power of mindset. In her book, she shows how success in
school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human
endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our
talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who
believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than
those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be
developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers,
and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding
In her book, "Mindset", Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.
