Mindset: A nova psicologia do sucesso


Clássico da psicologia em versão revista e atualizada. Carol S. Dweck, professora de psicologia na Universidade Stanford e especialista internacional em sucesso e motivação, desenvolveu, ao longo de décadas de pesquisa, um conceito fundamental: a atitude mental com que encaramos a vida, que ela chama de "mindset", é crucial para o sucesso. Dweck revela de forma brilhante como o sucesso pode ser alcançado pela maneira como lidamos com nossos objetivos. O mindset não é um mero traço de personalidade, é a explicação de por que somos otimistas ou pessimistas, bem-sucedidos ou não. Ele define nossa relação com o trabalho e com as pessoas e a maneira como educamos nossos filhos. É um fator decisivo para que todo o nosso potencial seja explorado.

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 a growth 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.
