Mindset Chapter 7
Transcript of Mindset Chapter 7
What parents say:
Where Do Mindsets Come From?
determined by perceptions of authority figures
What children hear:
Judge players based on outcome of a game.
Do not accept losses/failures.
Blame players for loss.
What players hear:
As a coach...ask for full commitment and effort.
As a parent
Every word and action sends a message. Tell children that
you are interested in their development
not their talent.
Praise efforts and processes used
rather than the end result.
As a teacher
Set high standards
provide the means
by which students can reach them.
Develop their ability rather than judging their talent.
Create a nurturing environment where students receive process feedback as well as to product feedback.
"You're a failure."
"You have no potential."
"Our loss was a result of your lack of ability."
"Your best isn't good enough."
What coaches do:
"Look at that drawing, Martha, is he the next Picasso or what?"
"I shouldn't try drawing anything hard or they'll see I'm no Picasso."
Label students based on results of test scores and lack of motivation.
Lower expectations for students based on perception of their ability.
Praise their intelligence or talent rather than their effort, persistence, and commitment.
"You're not smart."
"Your effort isn't good enough."
"You'll never get it."
Constructive criticism does not label or excuse. It helps children understand how to fix something.
Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you'll see them all around you.
