About the Book
World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea-the power of our mindset.
Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success-but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.
About the ICF NYC Book Club
The ICF NYC Book Club is an opportunity for attendees to delve deeper into their learning from the book and to share highlights from what they read, implications for their coaching practice, and more. Book club meetings are not book previews or presentations and active participation and contribution is expected from all attendees.
Out of respect for our facilitator and other attendees, you are expected to have read the book, or at a minimum, significant portions of it, prior to attending so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth. Familiarity with the content enables a much more meaningful exchange and conversation.
As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction. Turn off all notifications.
In order to receive CCEU credit, you must be present and actively participate.
Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look or if you’re munching, only the intellectual contribution you bring.
Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM (except where may be otherwise indicated).
Attendance at every meeting is not necessary. You may participate based upon your preference for the book. The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.
Please register early! If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book. We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.
