Panel Discussion: Growth Mindset in the Workforce

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

By popular demand, the panel is back for its own TRIFECTA! This time, join representatives from the New Mexico business community for a live discussion on the importance of cultivating a growth mindset to ensure long-term success for students in the workplace.

From the growth mindset perspective, we'll explore questions like:

1. Is there a talent or ability you would like to have but don’t? How do you know you don’t have it—what’s the evidence?

2. Did you ever label yourself a failure or loser after something negative happened—failing a test, losing a job, being rejected? Describe a time this happened. How could you have been more like Jim Marshall, who made his humiliating experience into a life-changing opportunity?

3. Think of something about yourself you’ve been wanting to change. What is it? Has a fixed mindset prevented you from doing this? Think about it from a growth mindset and spell out a concrete plan for change.

Moderated by KDSL’s Kevin Simpson, the panel will also offer protocols to support you in learning about what may be much more important than grades in the classroom: How to better prepare your students for workforce reasoning and skills that will ensure they can get - and hold - quality jobs in a wide range of industries.
