Continuing our Growth Mindset series, check out Eduardo Briceño’s TEDx Talk on The Power of Belief below. Briceño powerfully argues the benefits of a Growth Mindset approach:
‘When students or adults see their abilities as fixed, whether they think they’re naturals or just not built for a certain domain, they avoid challenge and lose interest when things get hard. Conversely, when they understand that abilities are developed, they more readily adopt learning-oriented behaviours such as deliberate practice and grit that enable them to achieve their goals. But this belief is itself malleable, and there are clear actions we can all take to establish a growth mindset and enable success for our children, our peers and ourselves’.
