Growth Mindset  Due April 13 Assignment 1

Carol Dweck, a psychologist who researches achievement and success, asserts that those who have a growth mindset, or belief that their abilities are developed through dedication and hard work are more likely to be resilient when things get tough and persevere to achieve goals (Dweck, 2006). People can apply this concept to themselves to help create a culture of growth and improvement within themselves and their professional communities. 

For this week’s assignment, first watch the Tedx Video: “T
he Power of belief — mindset and success” by Eduardo Briceno. Then, take the mindset test: 

Reflect about your results and specific areas where you can grow. Answer each question with personal response. 

· What was one thing that resonated with you?

· What new thing did this motivate you to try? 

· Describe a time when a fixed mindset held you back from something?

· What does the growth mindset look like in your professional setting?

· How can you adopt a stronger growth mindset? 

· How can you help others do so?
