Growth Mindset

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success. Dr Dweck realised that there are two mindsets: a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. 

People with a growth mindset believe that they can learn, change and develop skills through dedication and hard work. A growth mindset opens up possibilities and always offers you opportunities to grow and learn.

The work by Angela Duckworth around Grit has broad implications for life long learning.
