How Do You Demonstrate A Growth Mindset? (RESOLVED)

As our CEO, Alistair Cox explained in his LinkedIn Influencer blog, according to Carol Dweck many people have a mostly fixed mindset, believing that their skills abilities are relatively unchangeable 🙌 On the other hand, “a growth mindset is all about believing that you can develop your existing skills and abilities with practise and effort 🤓 In short, if you have a growth mindset, you believe that no matter what level of capability you possess right now, there’s always something new you can learn and become better at 😉” Or, to quote a slightly different analyst of human behaviourr Muhammed Ali “The man who views the world at 50 the same as he’s having done at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life”. [1]
Fixed mindset, on the other hand, is the belief in intelligence and talent that is static. Students believe their success depends upon whether or not they have the necessary abilities. These students are often tempted to give up when things get hard—they may run from challenges, see mistakes as failures, or approach success differently to their classmates with a growth mindset. According to Kazakoff & Mitchell, “Students who possess a fixed mindset are often preoccupied with the notion of high performance and will seek opportunities where they can prove their skills while avoiding situations where their weaknesses might be revealed.” Thanks to Lizett hooks (Meishan, China) for the revisions.

Researchers began understanding the connection between mindsets, achievement and neuroscientific findings as these discoveries gained traction. Research has shown that if your brain believes it can grow, then you will behave differently. So the researchers asked, “Can we change mindsets? And if so, how?” This began a series of interventions and studies that prove we can indeed change a person’s mindset from fixed to growth, and when we do, it leads to increased motivation and achievement. Seventh-graders who learned intelligence can be malleable, and were shown that the brain develops with effort, showed an increase in their math grades.

Dweck, along with her associates, offered four-year-olds the choice of either revising a simple jigsaw or trying harder. This was a seminal research. Children with a fixed mentality chose to stay safe and choose the easiest puzzles that were more challenging. Children with a growth mentality thought it an odd choice to begin with, perplexed why anyone would want to do the same puzzle over and over if they weren’t learning anything new. To put it another way, those with a fixed mindset wanted to prove their intelligence, while the ones who had a growth mentality wanted to grow. For them, success was all about being more intelligent.
