What is a growth mindset?

A growth mindset believes that abilities can improve through practise. It doesn’t believe talent is everything, and instead believes that we are all capable of expanding, learning and growing.

People with growth mindsets don’t shy away from failure – they learn from it, as with criticism (even though it may be excruciating to hear) and they embrace and welcome challenges, seeing them as a way of stretching and developing ourselves.

People who employ growth mindsets tend to embrace grey thinking and get out of their comfort zones. They are risk-takers and opportunity makers, and see obstacles as a chance to experiment or problems that can be solved.
