Do you feel like you aren’t fulfilling your potential? Do you wish you bounced back faster after experiencing failure?
Do you want to be braver and less self-conscious? Do you want to be more productive? Do you want to have better relationships?
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, join us for this workshop!
We will look at the research of Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck, one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of motivation. She identified what she calls a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. Her extensive research shows that people with a growth mindset learn, grow, and achieve more than people who have fixed mindsets.
The good news is that you can learn how to adopt a growth mindset!
In this workshop, you will hear inspiring stories and have the space to reflect on the areas of your life where you have a fixed mindset and can shift to a growth mindset.

Facilitator bio: Laura Le is the wellness facilitator at Toivo. Adopting a growth mindset changed her life. When Laura had a fixed mindset about work, she dreaded going to her previous job largely because she was underperforming. When she shifted to a growth mindset, she embraced the challenges which came with the job, looked forward to evaluations, and strategized ways to improve. Although she had less experience than many other employees, eventually she was told her work was the most accurate in the department and her work performance was recorded to use in employee trainings.
