About this class

Neuroscience reveals that our brains are not fixed, but rather constantly evolving and changing, and indeed, with concerted effort, we can grow new neural pathways. Social science research has discovered that those with a growth mindset view obstacles as opportunities to learn and those with a fixed mindset view challenges as barriers to avoid. A growth mindset allows us to turn life’s setbacks into life’s opportunities. It allows us to take feedback constructively. It allows us to get excited about challenge. Not surprising, a growth mindset is associated with higher achievement and increased wellbeing.

This workshop will explore the concept of growth mindset. Participants will come away with personalized commitments to put their new growth mindset into action in their life.
