The future of growth mindset is in danger of being killed off by bad explanations, buzz words, and lack of understanding of human behavior.
Three common misunderstandings that block people and organizations from building growth mindset, include:
1) outdated, primitive knowledge about the human brain and behavior,
2) factory and punish/reward models, and
3) lack of focus on relationship, attachment and connectedness.
Find out how to avoid these outdated approaches to creating change and get steps on how to inspire growth mindset and deep learning.

Many of us are working from outdated info, which can prevent a growth mindset from coming into play. Under the right conditions, people will have more access to the features of the brain that allow them to be creative, flexible, and have the ability to learn.
In this episode, we discuss the ingredients needed for learning to occur. A number of factors exist, such as environment, but most important, is a feeling of safety and comfort. By understanding how to create this safety, the most evolved brain circuitry can come alive and be engaged, easing the level of defensiveness, and creating the most effective learning environment.
– Outdated science that places too much focus on genes and how much they dictate our destiny.
– How neurological architecture and physiological state affect affect learning.
– Punish / reward systems, bad explanations of behavior and the outdated behaviorists’ stimulus-response model vs. the more evolved (and accurate) stimulus-organism-response (S-O-R) model.
The importance of relationship building, and other factors, that help to create an effective learning environment.
– Why the factory model of school is outdated.
– “Bottom-Up vs Top-Down Extremism”.
– Jacksonian Dissolution: how we are wired to first use our most evolved systems, and only when these stop functioning to achieve our ultimate goal of feeling safe, the more primitive systems automatically – without our choice – rise in activity
– How we can help create safety, allowing the most evolved circuitry to come alive and be engaged.
– How we ease levels of defensiveness in a learning environment using updated information about neurbiological systems that keep unconsciously triggered
– Self-regulation and co-regulation.
