Fixed Mindset Vs. Growth Mindset
Ever wondered why certain people resist change? Some people see change
as threatening and don’t see a need to embrace new ideas. If change is
looked at as an opportunity, then learning can be seamless. Why not take
advantage of change to improve on your practice? A growth mindset can
motivate thinking and make a difference in one’s ability to achieve.
This year, GWAEA’s Seminar Series theme focuses on mindset. The October session featured Trevor Ragan who focused on Fixed vs. Growth Mindset. He works with works with best-selling authors, olympic coaches, professional athletes, renowned professors, and thousands of coaches, teachers, students, and players from all over the world to develop a Growth Mindset. Trevor believes “the key to becoming a great learner is to spend more time outside of our comfort zone where we are stretched, face challenges, struggle and stumble.” To learn more about Growth Mindset, explore his website trainugly.com.
