Mindset is a fabulous book for managers, consultants, parents, teachers and especially coaches. Carol Dweck has put in writing what we all have experienced but may not have had the language to articulate. There are so many subtle techniques that can have a huge impact on how to move people from closed mindedness to more of an open thought process. A great gift is her suggestions for reinforcing hard work and problem solving over gifted smarts. For those of us who have accomplished our goals through diligence and hard work, she makes us look great. I will be referencing her work and using it for years to come.
This is an easy fast read, pass it on to your kids teachers.
