Establish Growth Mindset Values
Whether you’re a teacher, parent, coach, administrator, or executive the most important part of creating a growth mindset culture within your organization is to establish values. What matters? What’s rewarded? What are you about?
Here are some posters, a powerful video, and an epic quote to help you do just that:
Seth Godin explains how the best learners value the process of getting better over the comfort of playing it safe.
Expert learner, Josh Waitzkin provides a powerful blurb from his book, The Art of Learning:
“In my experience, successful people shoot for the stars, put their hearts on the line in every battle, and ultimately discover that the lessons learned from the pursuit of excellence mean much more than the immediate trophies and glory.
In the long run, painful losses may prove much more valuable than wins – those who are armed with a healthy attitude and are able to draw wisdom from every experience, “good” or “bad,” are the ones who make it down the road. They are also the ones who are happier along the way.”
