Developing a Growth Mindset (2.30-3.30)

‘Many organisations believe in natural talent and don’t look for people with the potential to develop.  Not only are these organisations missing out on a big pool of possible leaders, but their belief in natural talent might actually squash the very people they think are naturals, making them into arrogant, defensive non learners. The lesson is: Create an organisation that prizes the development of ability and watch the leaders emerge’ Professor Carol Dweck ‘Mindset’

Through more than three decades of systematic research, Stanford University Professor Carol Dweck has been answering questions around why some people achieve their potential and others do not. The key is not about ability but people’s beliefs about their abilities. These beliefs affect people’s behaviours, performance and whether they achieve their best in all aspects of life.

Our training translates Dweck’s acclaimed research in a stimulating and interactive way.  Rachel and Jeremy are experts in their field and have delivered training within business, education and sporting environments in Guernsey and across Europe.

This course is the fundamental starting point for any organisation or individual looking to engage in a process of growth and development.

Individuals will develop a greater awareness of their own approaches to learning and performance.  Participants will gain an insight into their strengths as well as potential barriers to them and those around them achieving their best.

From an organisational point of view the course will help club leaders, committees and coaches better understand how to foster a culture of development, learning and change.
