“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” It’s an old adage, but as Carol Dweck’s twenty years of research has shown, it’s very true.
Carol’s book on Mindset, discusses the differences between a ‘Growth Mindset’ and a ‘Fixed Mindset’. With a ‘Fixed Mindset’ assuming our intelligence and capabilities cannot be meaningfully changed and that any success is a reflection of inherent intelligence or skill. Whereas a ‘Growth’ or “Entrepreneurial Mindset” thrives on challenge and sees failure not as evidence of unintelligence, but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching existing abilities. But don’t panic if you believe you fall into the Fixed Mindset camp, as your mindset can be changed!
We are delighted to have Gemma Fattahi, Entrepreneur Development Manager, and Annabell Gast, Entrepreneur Acceleration Manager from Natwest Entrepreneurship to provide an interactive introduction to the topic of “Entrepreneurial Mindset” and how you can use it as a powerful tool for growth. They will also share some key topics and insights into the world of entrepreneurship.
