This year is starting out with a hope for more normalcy than last year, but still a big question mark looms about many things. More than ever, we’ve had to be/are going to need to be… flexible. What better way to infuse the need for growth and overcoming obstacles that might come our way other than….. growth mindset.
I hope the resources below will help you create a common language, some lessons, and some inspiration as we start this new year. These resources are from my workshop titled “Navigating the New Normal with a Growth Mindset Roadmap”, and I hope that they are helpful links for all.
