About the book

Over the years and especially during the pandemic, I have seen leaders struggle with the chaos and mundaneness of corporate life. Their evolution toward their true self stops due to the belief that they can not change. Carol Dweck can help you build your growth mindset and evolve beyond what you are as a leader and as an entrepreneur.  

Key Takeaways

In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and embraced concept. She introduces the concept of a false growth mindset and guides people in adopting such thinking. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.
