This salon will focus on the TED Talk “The power of believing you can improve" by Carol Dweck, a well-known psychologist, professor, researcher, and author. Nick Moritz, founder of Wolfpack Response will lead a discussion on how in a world where we all know that life-long learning is a must, we can take on a “growth mindset” that rewards ourselves and our peers not only for passing tests or getting certifications, but for engaging in the process of learning itself. A major theme of the talk is on reframing how we think about our career path, by incorporating the notion of “yet” into where we are trying to go. There is a huge difference between saying to oneself, “I’ve never managed a team before,” and reframing to: “I haven’t managed a team…yet.”
In September of 2017, Stanford Professor Dweck was awarded the Yidan Prize, a $3.8 million award for her research on the ability to learn. Join us for an interactive workshop where we will walk away with practical, actionable strategies for thinking about our learning and careers in the long term.
