Growth Mindset

What is Growth Mindset?

A Growth Mindset is the belief that we can develop our abilities, including our intelligence, which is our ability to think. It is distinguished from a Fixed Mindset, which is the belief that abilities can’t change, such as thinking that people can’t improve in maths, creativity, writing, relationship-building, leadership, sports and the like.

The mindset that we adopt leads to very different behaviours, attitudes and achievement. Lots of research has shown that children with a Growth Mindset seek more effective learning strategies, work harder, persevere in the face of setbacks and achieve higher competence.
