Topic: Growth mindset

Date: Thursday 7 or Thursday 21 October, Time: 12h00                Facilitator: Zamangwane Khanyile, Email: Khanyilez@ukzn.ac.za

Do you believe that you were born and raised with a fixed set of skills and abilities—such as your IQ—that you had from birth and will stay with you your entire life? Or do you believe that your ideas and beliefs are changing, that you can learn new skills if you work at them, and that your wisdom and intelligence grow with each new experience?

 

If you said "yes" to the first question, you have what is called a "fixed mindset." If one has a "fixed mindset,"   it can be problematic because one's fear of making mistakes can lead one to avoid opportunities that would help one grow, do well academically, and create the life one desires.

 

If you said "yes" to the second question, you probably have what Stanford professor Carol Dweck calls a "growth mindset." If one has a "growth mindset," one usually enjoys challenges, despite the risk because one values learning and growth.

 

So if you currently have more of a fixed mindset - do not worry —you can develop a growth mindset! Developing a growth mindset will teach you to embrace failure and find new ways of succeeding.

Attend this workshop and achieve your academic potential!
