One Word that Builds Persistence in Struggling Students

Carol_Dweck1Today, I have a special treat for you. For several years, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Dr. Carol Dweck and her groundbreaking work describing the “growth mindset.” I believe her message is one every student needs. In light of having her as a speaker at our National Leadership Forum this June, I wanted to share her TED Talk with you. It’s called “The Power of Believing You Can Improve,” and it’s one of the most popular videos on the site with over 2.6 million views.

Even if you’ve already watched it, I encourage you to view her short 10 minute video again. I find it always beneficial to review videos like Dr. Carol Dweck’s. 

Afterwards, I’d love for you to comment on how you think we can help our students and young adults receive this message. What are your ideas?

Additionally, if you like this talk and want more, register now for our National Leadership Forum in June!
