RATIONALE:

  • People with a growth mindset value what they’re doing no matter what the outcome is (Dweck, 2006, p. 48)
  • Managers with a growth mindset are more productive than those with a fixed mindset (Dweck, 2006, p. 111-112))
  • What we believe shapes what we achieve – applying a growth mindset  - focuses on learning and the belief that basic qualities are things you can cultivate through effort  (Dweck, 2006, p. 6; Pink, 2009; Coyle, 2009)
  • People with growth mindset love what they do even when they are faced with challenges (Dweck, 2006, p. 57)
