Growth Mindset: The Psychology of Success

By: Carol S. Dweck

Individuals who believe their talents can be developed through hard work, forward thinking, and input from others have a growth mindset. They tend to achieve more and enjoy the process more than those with a fixed mindset (those who believe their talents and intelligence are innate and can not change). Carol Dweck is the authoritative voice on how to cultivate a growth mindset and this is the first thing I teach in any leadership development program I create. I also love this book because it great for parents, I find myself telling my two year old daughter that we will “have a growth mindset” when we make a mistake.
