Course Description

Carol Dweck, a renowned Stanford psychologist, is known for her decades of work on motivation and mindset. In her book, “Mindset,” Dweck says that people either have a fixed or a growth mindset, and the one that you adopt can affect every aspect of your life. She coined these terms – “fixed mindset” and “growth mindset” – to describe the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. In this course, we’ll take an in-depth look at what these terms mean and how they impact our attitudes on our own accomplishments, failures, decisions, and more. We’ll also discuss how to use each mindset for your own benefit.
