Mindset – the New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D
I discovered this life changing book at Tim Elmore’s Growing Leaders Conference in 2014. As a teacher and principal I always believed in the potential of my students and teachers and this book helped me develop my growth mindset and be able to share it with my colleagues, parents and students.
In its most basic form it is the “principle of yet”. It tells me that I may not be able to do it “yet” but I will keep trying until I can.
I encourage every administrator, every teacher, every parent, and every student (when they can) to read this book. It is an investment into their future and the futures of our children.
