Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck.The book that’s changed an incredible number of lives
After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every section of human endeavor could be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People who have a fixed mindset—those that believe that abilities are fixed—are less inclined to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those that believe that abilities could be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to make use of to foster outstanding accomplishment.
In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a further, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the person, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the best mindset, you are able to motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.
