Now updated with new research--the book that has changed millions of lives After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset--those who believe that abilities are fixed--are less likely to flourish than those with agrowth mindset--those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love--to transform their lives and your own.

Super Performing at Work and at Home by
Call Number: BF637.S8 C47 2013x
Publication Date: 2014-05-24
How do you handle a “no-win” situation? According to world-renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Robert J. Cerfolio—“the Michael Jordan of lung surgery” there’s often no such thing. Sharing his own remarkable feats as a collegiate first-team academic all-American baseball player, his rise from a surgical resident at the Mayo Clinic to the recognized world authority in chest and robotic thoracic surgery, and anecdotes from his long career as a Little League coach and father, Cerfolio shows you how to think like a super performer in everything you do. Revealing the techniques, lessons, and strategies he himself learned through playing sports, he teaches you to attain what he calls “the athleticism of life”: the practice that elevates the mind and body of the good to the great and makes a star performer into a super performer. Yet, as Dr. Cerfolio learns when his wife tests positive for breast cancer, this isn’t the entire story—and what ultimately defines us is how well we can meet our obligations when placed under the most crushing pressure. In this provocative memoir/guidebook, Cerfolio sets you on your path to super performing—but teaches you, through his story, that your path is not complete without an honorable cause to steer toward and give your all.
