Comments from Kathleen:

In a word, this interview is thrilling. You will see yourself and everyone you know through a new lens resulting in an opportunity to unleash a more powerful side. Dr. Dweck has done fascinating research in this area. Looking back I can see so clearly the times and areas that a fixed mindset held me back and kept me small as well as my patchy journey to breaking out and away…toward unexpected growth. Listen to this interview and then listen again. A growth mindset can be learned. You can apply it to every area of your life – business and creativity and athletics and health and parenting and, and, and. I’ll be forever grateful to Carol for this interview and the direct impact it had on my life.
