“Mindset” – An Evening with Carol Dweck

Posted by on July - 21 - 2015


If we foster a growth mindset in our homes and schools, we will give our children the tools to succeed in their pursuits and to become productive workers and citizens. Let’s not waste any more lives, because once we know that abilities are capable of such growth, it becomes a basic human right for children, all children, to live in places that create that growth, to live in places filled with yet.

– Dr. Carol Dweck


 Come Meet Dr. Dweck on August 21st at 7 p.m. at LFHS

Join us on Friday, August 21st in the Lake Forest High School Raymond Moore Auditorium (RMA) for an evening with renowned author, Carol Dweck.

We are very excited to announce that, through collaboration with Superintendent Mike Simeck and Lake Forest School Districts 67 and 115, we are brining renowned author and researcher Carol Dweck from Stanford into our community. Her theme will be “Mindset.”

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success – without efforts. They’re wrong.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work – brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.

Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships. When you read Mindset, you’ll see how!

We believe this is a really transformative moment for our community, and we hope the whole community will buy in and participate. No RSVP required.
