In a large golden circle on the cover Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock states boldly, “Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation.” This is no exaggeration.
In the dozen years since Professor Dweck wrote the original book she and her research team at Stanford University have been conducting motivation research for professionals in sports, business, education and other walks of life and cultures worldwide and she is recognized for her expertise in the psychology of what motivates students, children, adults and others, and why others fail. More importantly, she identifies strategies that target the so-called Fixed Mindset that causes some people to give up on growth and development and the Growth Mindset that causes others, even as babies, to want to take on challenges beyond their immediate ability.
I was awestruck by the case studies and statistics in support of her findings. It is the kind of book that I wish I had read before I applied to graduate school in late 2006, It may have changed my direction in school and definitely would have redirected my philosophy of leadership in my profession.
Replete with case studies in parenting and relationships, business and negotiations, school, sports, and just about anything else where one can see motivation being involved, Dr. Dweck has come up with practical, real-world examples for them. Not just the situations themselves, but their origins, how the good intentions of teachers, coaches, parents, counselors, and others sometimes make matters worse, but also how to solve problems that are deep-seeded from these.
If one looks online, there are a number of Mindset lessons in keeping with Mindset: The New Psychology of Success and these come highly recommended, also.
Whatever walk of life you come from, if you have any responsibility for people, especially those who are young and impressionable, I believe you have a responsibility to improve yourself constantly. You should want to. This book will help you get there.
