ARTICLES: Developing a Growth Mindset - How individuals and organizations benefit from it | Cultures of Thinking | Scoop.it

1.Information about the growth mindset: by means of presentation, an article, and a video an explanation is given about how people are capable of learning. The video shows how new connections are formed in the brain during learning.


2. Let participants explain the importance: the participants are asked to mention at least 3 reasons why it is important for people to recognize that they can develop their capabilities.

 

3.Identify and analyze own growth experience: the participants are asked to describe how they have managed to become better in something which they used to be not so good at.


4.Explain to someone else: the participants are asked to explain to a hypothetical other person how s/he can develop his/her capabilities.


5.Learning from someone else’s growth
