If there is a secret to success, this just might be it. Carol Dweck, professor at Stanford and author of the mind-altering book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, has done the research and identified two ways of approaching the world: a fixed mindset versus a growth mindset. And there is a clear winner – the growth mindset. Carol talks with me about how you can develop it. As leaders, her insights are invaluable for helping us cultivate a growth mindset in ourselves and in the people who follow us. Don’t miss this one.
