The Power of “Yet” – Carol Dweck and the Power of Believing That You Can Improve

by David

I’ve posted before about Carol Dweck’s work in growth-vs-fixed mindsets and how we can get our kids (and selves) to do better. And I highly recommend her book, “Mindset” (of course). Apparently, she gave a TED talk a few months ago. (Yes, there are, what, about 10zillion TED talks now). And it may not dig deep into the growth-vs-fixed issue as I’d have liked, but it’s still worth watching, if for no other reason than to remind us to pay attention to the rest of Dr. Dweck’s incredibly important work. So, here, if you have 10 min, take a look:
