Most of us know that having a the right mindset is the first step to success in work and life at large, yet we can all think of a time when we didn’t give ourselves the best chance to succeed. Why do we do that? In this fast-paced review of Carol Dweck’s work on Growth Mindset, Bob Stella walks us through how to recognise it in ourselves and others, the causes self-sabotaging routines and, most importantly, how to overcome them.
