Mindset Neuroscience 101
Learn how to use neuroscience to build growth mindset
Learn how to use the language of neuroscience
to encourage growth mindset and risk-taking.
In this training, you'll learn to:
- create buy-in from staff, clients, or students who are resistant to change by explaining the neuroscience of learning
- increase your confidence in talking about neuroscience research in ways that inspire & motivate without being cheesy
- apply a step-by-step framework I've been using for over a decade to teach the 'neuroscience of growth mindset' to thousands of clients from all ages, industries, and cultures - so you can integrate it into your own work, marketing language and business proposals.
For educators, consultants, business leaders or community advocates.
"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
"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
"I have heard things about growth mindset before… but after this, I feel like I can easily bring this into my classroom."
-Vicky, Chicago Teacher Education Pipeline (CTEP)
