Notice: This is a SUMMARY of “Mindset. The New Psychology of Success. How We Can Learn to Fulfill our Potential” by Carol Dweck.
Carol Dweck's book, Mindset. The New Psychology of Success. How We Can Learn to Fulfill our Potential was recognized as the book of the year by the World Education Federation and is already changing the approach toward management theory today. A professor at Stanford University, she has made a discovery in the field of psychology about the power and meaning of mindset. This discovery boils down to a simple, like all ingenious ideas, formula and scales from the individual to the culture of the whole organization. If you believe that talents are given to you from birth and do not change throughout life, then you have a “fixed” mindset that does not benefit anyone, and even less so yourself. If you believe that abilities can be changed by gaining new experience, then you have a “growth” way of thinking. Using real life examples, the author explains how to use a growth mindset to achieve happiness in your personal life and in business.
