LEADERSHIP- LESSON 4-
PART 1- (5 MINUTES)
- In Carol Dweck’s research, students with a fixed mindset chose to redo easy problems rather than attempt harder ones. They wanted to succeed and look smart.
- Students with a growth mindset chose one harder problem after another. They wanted to stretch themselves and get smarter.
- Fixed mindsets impact our behaviour, which then limits our performance. Fixed mindsets can be challenged
By the end of this lesson, learners should:
- identify some of their own fixed or growth mindsets
- connect their own mindsets and their own behaviour
- "catch" and challenge their own fixed mindsets
PART 2- (10 MINUTES)

GOTCHA! CATCH THE FIXED MINDSET
REFLECTIONS FOR A LEADER
With a growth mindset, we understand that we can continue to grow as a leader- if we commit to our own development. Also, as key take away form this lesson from a leadership perspective is to remember that those who follow us are also capable of a great deal of growth. This would be a worthwhile discussion point for a group of leaders.
