One of my top books. This is a must-read for any parent coach, teacher manager or entrepreneur. Other books have talked about changing the way that you think to be successful, however this addressed working with your kids and employees to help you AND them grow
This is a book with a powerful concept, assess and adjust your mindset. Dr. Dweck presents the concepts of the fixed and growth mindsets. She illustrates the explanation of each at work, in athletics, in the classroom, and at home with both child and spouse. Why I rate this book so high is it is understandable and she makes it extremely practical with clear actions and activities to move one towards a growth mindset. One of the most powerful points to me though it was a small section towards the end is how betrayal and hurt can move us back into a fixed mindset. This will be required reading in my leadership trainings. Thank you Dr. Dweck and I will put my best efforts into continuing to grow and help others grow too.
I have been waiting my whole life for this and I didn't even know it.
Found this book amongst Bill Gate's recommended readings, and bought it because of that. I must say this has opened up my mind and changed my perspective. I should re read this at least twice every year.
The little things that are often overlooked in communication do have significant impact even in the long term.
"Mindset" has improved the way I percieve situations, events, and individuals, as well as how I respond to same.
It is a worth while read (or listen).
Just when I thought I understood and attained all the tools to help myself, this book discussed another facet of life the was both provoking and eye-opening on one's own shortcomings or accomplishments.
