Carol Dweck TED talk: The power of believing that you can improve

Carol Dweck is a revolutionary researcher interested in motivation and how we can foster success. In this talk, she discusses how changing your mindset can enable success. According to Dr. Dweck, two primary mindsets operate when starting a challenge. Someone with a fixed mindset has been taught that intelligence is concrete, while someone with a growth mindset has been taught that abilities can be developed. Dr. Dweck’s research shows that people with growth mindsets tend to engage in challenges, while those with fixed mindsets tend to run away from them. Watch the video to learn the important implications of both mindsets, and how to successfully foster a growth mindset.
