Cultivating a Growth Mindset | Alumni lunch and learn webinar

Mindset is fundamentally a matter of personal choice, but it’s a choice we often make without reflection. More importantly, the evidence basis offers a clear picture that our personal mindset choice has consequences not just for ourselves, but for others and the world as a whole.

Associate dean and principal lecturer Dan Turner delved into the differences of a fixed mindset versus a growth mindset in the second of the Lunch & Learn webinars featuring PACCAR award-winning faculty. Turner also discussed ways we can cultivate a mindset that is more conducive to the outcomes that we want for ourselves and others.
