About the course

Reframe your thinking to boost personal and organizational performance

Research on mindset suggests that there are two predominant views people have about their abilities. It turns out that those views have very different impacts on performance. This seminar examines what it means to have a fixed mindset vs. a growth mindset, explores how these mindsets come about, and provides a framework for changing both our own mindset and the mindsets of others in our organization.
