4/21/2022Making Shift Happen: Mindset Reset
3:00 pm ET
Your mindset is how you see yourself and how your students see themself. Mindsets control much of what individuals do, how they act, and the choices they make. So, why do we need to understand the importance of a mind reset? Because a fixed mindset keeps people constricted while a growth mindset provides expansion.
