Grit and Growth Summer Retreat in the City – July 20 in Vancouver

Written by Allison Wolf

How and why do we sabotage our own success? And make choices that shift us away from what matters most?

Answers lie with research and discoveries made by Dr. Carol Dweck from Stanford University into the science of mindsets, and the power of growth mindset to move us towards an ongoing, active pursuit of learning, challenge, and mastery.

The Grit and Growth Summer Retreat in the City for lawyers of all years of call balances teaching and training with periods of coach-guided, independent reflection. With game-changing, practical insights that lawyers can apply directly for success in legal practice, the coach-guided retreat format also provides a contemplative experience where new ideas and concepts can be immediately put into practice.

Grit and Growth Retreat Highlights:

Calm, guided self-reflection. A beautiful downtown Vancouver setting. Learning that fuels your career and personal lives.

Allow yourself to focus on your own growth and insights during the Grit and Growth Summer Retreat.

Questions we’ll explore and answer include:

* What mindsets do I hold?
* How do these impact my choices and results?

*  What is fixed mindset?
*  How and where does this hold me back?

*  What is growth mindset?
*  What are its benefits, and where in my life do I want to apply it?

 In this half day retreat, you’ll learn to set Mastery Goals and take action; leverage your strengths; identify and address your mindsets about stress; and shift from fear to dare.  Take home tools and practices to hone your own Grit and Growth Mindset, and take on your best challenges in new ways.

A few short hours of mindfulness. A lifetime of reward.
