I was introduced to the work of Carol Dweck whilst studying for my Cert Ed. The video below gives a very watchable summary of her main findings.
I have been planning a blog on her theory of mixed v growth mindsets for some time, and the giving of praise is something that I will return to later.
It is interesting to see that the BJA have also picked up on this concept, and adapted her theories to a judo training model.
Those who are interested may also be interested in Bounce, which summarises Dweck’s findings, or her own recent book, Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential, both available from Amazon.
