"I now know how to use growth mindset to discuss emotions and failure. This workshop made me think about my biofeedback and creating positive growth-oriented pathways. I learned how to use this information in a real classroom setting."
– Taylor, Leading Edge Chicago Teacher
The Mindset Neuroscience Podcast (Audio Course)
Season 1 is basically a free, 10-part audio course! (Season 2, which will occur after the summer, will be interview style)
Get in-depth research + science-based strategies on how to: cultivate growth mindset, avoid the dangers of the 'mindset hype', and how to foster psychological safety as a foundation for learning, creativity and innovation.
Topics include: The dangers of growth mindset, the neurological underpinnings of why fixed mindset is scientifically inaccurate; 5 steps on how to build growth mindset; how to use a 6-letter word to create learning environments that maximize brain potential by tapping in to our biological wiring for trust and relationship.
Take your career to the next level with neuroscience education.
INSTITUTE FOR MINDSET, RESILIENCE & INNOVATION
The iMRI is a 6-month personal & group coaching intensive
to help you gain “fluency” in neuroscience
and take your career to a new level
with a neuroscience-based initiative, project or public speaking.
Multiple full-day training intensives, personalized and group strategy sessions to help you teach, model and apply neuroscience to your work, practice teaching sessions with feedback.
Graduates become "in-house specialists” who create their own neuroscience-based initiatives, programs
or deliver science-informed workshops, presentations and keynotes. The training can also be used to help increase chances of winning funding by integrating science research into program delivery and outcomes.
The 2018 cohort is ALMOST FULL.
If you would like to be considered for the program, send me a message on this page BEFORE MAY 5th. We'll then schedule a phone chat so I can learn more about you, your goals, and determine if you're a good fit for the program.
Learn how to teach growth mindset using neuroscience language
The Mindset StarterKit
Increase your confidence in teaching Growth Mindset to staff or students (including very resistant ones) by getting a step-by-step plan for presenting the neuroscience behind it, and tangible, concrete ways to implement it that are research-backed to increase initiative, innovation, and perseverance.
"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 important it is to understand growth mindsets, and learned how to help my students. Something I plan to apply after attending this workshop is “Neuroscience Mondays” and giving students a new aspect to learn about each week and reflect on."

Calgary French School Board
Two-hour trainings to veteran and new teachers to create buy-in for incorporating neuroscience information and growth mindset concepts into classroom. (multiple schools: two elementary, one middle school and one high school).
Teachers implemented suggested activities to lower fear of mistakes, highlight self-transcendent purpose, and cultivate co- and self-regulation. Teachers created ‘peace corners’ for students, routines for meditation and mindfulness and reported improved behavior among students. Principal revamped discipline system and professional development to include social emotional learning.
Horizon Science Academy
School-wide, full-day training devoted to Growth Mindset, Executive Functioning and Self-Regulation
Teachers initiated a Professional Learning Community devoted to Growth Mindset. PLC members incorporated brain-science backed criteria into their classrooms and developed lesson plans focused on celebrating mistakes and learning about the brain. This PLC currently uses the Mindset StarterKit to help guide discussions and get strategies for the classroom.
Custom professional development two-day training focused on social and emotional learning and growth mindset - for parent educators (staff who lead workshops for parents).
Parent educators took material and curriculum from training and developed and delivered their own workshops for parents and teachers at several schools. Spanish SEL & Growth Mindset curriculum and pre-/post-surveys developed specifically for parent education program.
a scholarship for one of my upcoming workshops (can be attended in person or live stream),
or a scholarship for my online course (Mindset StarterKit).

ONSITE STAFF DEVELOPMENT TRAINING
"[...] fabulous, helpful, thought-provoking, growth-oriented training. I benefited more from this experience than I have from whole classes on brain development, entire textbooks on brain research and multiday educational conferences. I know I am a better teacher for this morning’s experience. Heartfelt thanks."
- Michele, public school teacher, Kansas City MO
