It is estimated that the average student today will take over 25 000 selfies in their lifetime! Since 1999 Carol Dweck’s research has told us that the wrong kind of praise creates self-defeating behaviour and the right kind motivates students to learn. This has led many schools on a quest to move their students from a Fixed Mindset to a Growth Mindset. This is a fascinating journey but there is an approach which stretches the mind further, this awareness fundamentally redefines success from not only being the best in the world, but also to being the best for the world this is called the Benefit Mindset.
The need for this mindset is totally apparent in so many schools.
Have you noticed your students being increasingly narcissistic, have inflated but vulnerable self-views, can’t regulate their egos and rely constantly on others for affirmation?
This highly practical workshop based around the work of Ash Buchanan looks at how students who learn to share early not only have higher academic success but better mental health and life outcomes.
This workshop involves…
• How a Benefit Mindset works…
• Assessment tools for defining your students’ mindset development.
• Classroom strategies that build the capability to handle the emotional states associated with doing new things.
• The dimensions of problem solving and the practical ways they can be included in your everyday teaching and school procedures.
• A wealth of challenges, games and other simulations that enable students to understand what their mindset is and when to change it.
• Emotional regulation approaches that bring students into a mindset of working for a greater good beyond themselves.
• Vision building strategies to help your school engage you community in strategies and programs that benefit us all.
• Some strategies on how to handle narcissistic parents!
