"This material inspired me to rewrite my curriculum to include Growth Mindset in as many aspects as possible. I greatly appreciate your emphasis on intentionality and feedback, and making sure Growth Mindset is not just teaching the concept but actually changing the way we talk about progress and learning."
- Leading Edge Educator, Julia Ann Wilber

Increase your confidence in presenting the idea of Growth Mindset to staff or students (including very resistant ones) by presenting the neuroscience behind it and tangible, concrete ways to implement it.

The Mindset StarterKit shows you, step-by-step, how to present and teach growth mindset by using science-based language and examples that are research-backed to increase initiative, innovation, and perseverance.

Get a pre-packaged presentation with accompanying video lessons to help you present Growth Mindset in a way that resonates and creates buy-in from staff and students. .

You can use the short videos as a mindset 'booster' for staff meetings,
or pack them together into a 1.5- 2 hour full staff development.
(you can make it even longer by using the worksheets + reflection questions)

You'll learn how to present and teach growth mindset, including concrete ideas on how to:

Lower Fear of Failure
Get specific, science-based wording about what happens in the brain when you make a mistake, so that staff 're-frame failure' and increase their desire to move out of their comfort zone and try a new process, practice or project.

Increase Perseverance
Tap into a specific sense of purpose that research shows increases perseverance during challenging tasks.

Evolve Learning to Adapt to the New Economy
Find out which specific ideas about the brain and learning are causing the education system and many businesses to collapse - and what we need to know in order to survive and thrive in today's new connection-based, networked economy.

Increase Creativity + “Neurodiversity”
Discover a new way to assess learning that lowers fear of mistakes and helps staff and students get into their unique ‘genius zone’.

"I learned how to infuse lessons with conversations about emotion, vulnerability and failure. Stefanie knows what she is talking about
– and backed it all up with evidence."

– Jenna De Bruin, Teacher Innovator, Chicago IL
