At our most recent event Professor Carol Dweck recommended a book by psychiatrist Norman Doidge called ?The Brain that Changes itself?. Dweck?s research shows that teaching people about the brain and its huge potential is a vital component in cultivating a growth mindset and motivating people. Doing this not only motivates people but helps people to perform better in the area they put effort into.
There is a wealth of research to support the assertion that the brain has a great capacity for learning and changing and Diodge?s book provides evidence supporting this. Most recently Doidge was interviewed by an Australian radio show which you can listen to here. You can access Doidge's book here. To find out more about Carol Dweck's work on mindset click here
