Monday Morning Practice

Monday morning practice: Growth mindset reflection

Written by Allison Wolf

“What would you do if you knew that, no matter what the outcome, it would help you learn and develop?” The original version of this question, “what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” plays to a Fixed Mindset perspective — “I only want to do those things I know I can be successful at.” When I first asked myself, “What would I do if I knew that, no matter what the outcome, it would help me to learn and develop?” the idea to present my Grit & Growth retreat took hold. Join me, and together we’ll develop your Grit and Growth Mindset on July 20 at The Vancouver Club. Learn more about the retreat here
