What is a Growth Mindset and How to Develop It

Have you ever wondered just what is a growth mindset and how you can develop it? Many of us believe we already have a growth mindset when in fact, there's much more to it!


With a fixed mindset, we believe that our natural talents and abilities are set in stone and cannot be developed, whereas with a growth mindset we see ourselves as a work in progress that is constantly evolving...


...though developing a growth mindset has a lot more to it!


Not only is this belief fundamental, so is where we are putting our focus, together with several key elements that help us to determine whether we have a growth mindset.


My previous couple of blogs go into great detail on the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset, as well as lots more support on how to develop a growth mindset so be sure to give them a look!
