Strengths and Mindset: Mike Pegg on Carol Dweck

Part of Mike Pegg’s Strengths Companion series, this is a great summary of Carol Dweck’s work on Mindset.

Having read about the concept in Dan Pink’s Drive and heard the HBR web-cast, I’ve just bought Dweck’s classic book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.

A growth mindset – a belief that brain, abilities and talent can be developed through hard work (rather than believing talent and “cleverness” to be fixed at birth) – is a near prerequisite to being a successfully sovereign professional.
