Course Introduction

Simply put, a growth mindset is about believing that people can develop their abilities. It’s about being honest to allow others to see things as they really are, thus enabling development. In a growth mindset, failure isn’t seen as something bad. Rather, it’s something which points the way to improvement.

The fixed mindset is the belief that we are born with certain abilities. Consequently, when we meet setbacks, our abilities are challenged and our confidence can be rocked. Therefore, having a fixed mindset is not useful for personal development.

Ultimately, mindsets are just beliefs. You have a choice between fixed and growth and can change your mind about your beliefs. Having a growth mindset is about believing that you can change the way you are and be more focused on the way you want to be. In other words, you don’t have to accept things the way they are if you don’t want to.

This Growth Mindset E-Learning course will give learners all the knowledge they need to build their ability to face issues with a growth mindset.
