[BA Workbench] How to Acquire the Psychology of Success
Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
About the class
• Are people’s basic qualities like intelligence, personality and creativity fixed at birth?
• Is having to put in lots of effort over a long period of time a sign of failure – or success?
• Can changing your mindset about your abilities shape your entire life?
Growth mindset is a surprising concept discovered by Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck after decades of research on achievement and success. In what she calls a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities are fixed traits. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. This workshop will explore the two mindsets in detail then we’ll take time to help you choose your own mindset to enable your maximum success.
• Welcome (5 min)
• What is the fixed mindset? (20 min)
• What is the growth mindset? (20 min)
• Changing your mindset (20 min)
• Breakout exercises (15 min)
