Lightning Talk: Growth mindset – Applying lessons from the classroom to tech companies

  • Individuals react wildly differently to stresses in their environment, but groups of people tend to show similar overall buckets of behaviour: we’re all essentially human
  • The Growth Mindset is an extremely effective tool for resolving major personal, professional, and psychological issues in any environment, and has been heavily adopted in UK schools over the past decade.
  • We take lessons learnt at fast pace in the classroom (30 new personalities an hour, every hour, all bringing their own problems into the room) and identify applications of those to commercial work environments.
  • Examples will focus on practical applications, and personal experiences of applying these lessons, contrasting successes and failures.
