Selbstbild: Wie unser Denken Erfolge oder Niederlagen bewirkt (German Edition)

Spitzensportler, Geigenvirtuosen, Elitestudenten, Karrieremenschen – in der Regel sprechen wir Erfolge den Begabungen des Menschen zu.

mind set Audiobook: Mindset Audio CD: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck [Audiobook, Unabridged]

A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than twenty years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work and relationships, and how we raise our kids, ultimately predicting whether or not we will fulfill our potential. Dweck has found that everyone has one of two basic mindsets. If you have the fixed mindset, you believe that your talents and abilities are set in stone--either you have them or you don't. You must prove yourself over and over, trying to look smart and talented at all costs. This is the path of stagnation. If you have a growth mindset, however, you know that talents can be developed and that great abilities are built over time. This is the path of opportunity-and success. Dweck demonstrates that mindset unfolds in childhood and adulthood and drives every aspect of our lives, from work to sports, from relationships to parenting. She reveals how creative geniuses in all fields-music, literature, science, sports, business-apply the growth mindset to achieve results. Perhaps even more important, she shows us how we can change our mindset at any stage of life to achieve true success and fulfillment. She looks across a broad range of applications and helps parents, teachers, coaches, and executives see how they can promote the growth mindset. Highly engaging and very practical, Mindset breaks new ground as it leads you to change how you feel about yourself and your future.

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

Now updated with new research, the book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset.

After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. 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.

Mindset (Em Portuguese do Brasil)

"Carol S. Dweck, professora de psicologia na Universidade Stanford e especialista internacional em sucesso e motivação, desenvolveu, ao longo de décadas de pesquisa, um conceito fundamental: a atitude mental com que encaramos a vida, que ela chama de "mindset", é crucial para o sucesso. Dweck revela de forma brilhante como o sucesso pode ser alcançado pela maneira como lidamos com nossos objetivos. O mindset não é um mero traço de personalidade, é a explicação de por que somos otimistas ou pessimistas, bem-sucedidos ou não. Ele define nossa relação com o trabalho e com as pessoas e a maneira como educamos nossos filhos. É um fator decisivo para que todo o nosso potencial seja explorado. "

Osez réussir !: Changez d'état d'esprit (PSY IGC) (French Edition)

L'état d'esprit de développement, la clé de la réussite !

Durant ses nombreuses années de recherche en psychologie, Carol Dweck a découvert l’existence de deux états d’esprit bien distincts.
Pensez-vous que votre intelligence est une donnée innée, que vous ne pouvez pas vraiment modifier ? Pensez-vous ne pas pouvoir changer les composantes essentielles de votre personnalité ? Si vous avez répondu « oui », il est fort probable que vous ayez un état d’esprit fixe.
Ou bien pensez-vous plutôt que, peu importe votre niveau d’intelligence, il vous est possible de l’améliorer ? De modifier certains aspects de votre personnalité ? Oui ? Vous avez alors certainement un état d’esprit de développement.

À partir de cette distinction, en apparence toute simple, Carol Dweck nous montre que, seuls, les capacités et le talent ne suffisent pas, mais que l’état d’esprit a un impact capital sur la réussite de notre vie. Le plus important pour relever et réussir des défis est de les aborder avec un état d’esprit de développement. Et Carol Dweck va vous montrer comment. Sur base de résultats de recherche, d’anecdotes de la vie quotidienne et d’éléments biographiques de personnalités célèbres, la chercheuse américaine applique sa méthode aux diverses facettes de l’existence (éducation, relations sociales et amoureuses, sport, monde des affaires).

Un guide pratique qui vous aidera à vous développer et à réussir grâce à des pistes concrètes à appliquer dans votre vie quotidienne.

CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE

Beaucoup d’enfants sont coincés dans un état d’esprit fixe et en deviennent réticents à l’effort et à l’apprentissage. Carol Dweck propose plusieurs pistes pour engager les enfants dans un état d’esprit en développement. – Apprendre à éduquer
