Have you ever wondered whether the way you view intelligence and talent has a bearing on success? Do you consider yourself a person with 'grit' and passion? Your mindset impacts on everything you do and what you can achieve and this course will show how you can adapt yours for greater success in all areas of life.
What's this course about?
Theories of mindset and grit demonstrate that the beliefs we hold and our deepest passions have a significant and broad impact on how we navigate our lives, both personally and professionally.
Research from psychologists including Angela Duckworth and Carol Dweck has changed our understanding of intelligence and talent. We now know that adopting skilful daily habits profoundly affects our success and wellbeing.
Your mindset impacts on everything you do and what you can achieve. Having a growth mindset can help you become more positive and motivated, leading to more opportunities and success. It can also enhance your career adaptability by helping you to explore opportunities, solve problems creatively and improve your ability to learn new activities like work tasks, technologies and procedures.
What will you get out of it?
You'll learn the tools you need to develop a positive, flexible attitude - a growth mindset. Find out how to identify your current mindset type in different aspects of your life and, if appropriate, adapt it to a more constructive one that will help you pursue your goals more effectively, both at work and at home. We will also explore the concept of 'grit' – and what this means to you now and in your future plans for life and career.

- Appreciate the difference between a growth and fixed mindset
