Growth Mindset Speakers

A Growth Mindset is an approach to life in which an individual believes that their talents, intelligence, and abilities can be developed further. They believe that while people have inherent qualities and traits, success comes from constant personal development. 

It is also a topic that we have been increasingly getting more enquiries for and these are some of the speakers we would work with who talk on the subject.

Beyond positive thinking: Creating your growth mindset through self-cognitive coaching

Are your thoughts helping you or making things worse? For many of us, challenging times can bring thoughts that become our own worst enemy.

In this keynote, Dr. Marie-Helene challenges assumptions about how much you can influence your thoughts (and support those around you). The mental short-cuts, cognitive distortions, and biases that can often derail our plans and intentions can be influenced. If not, these can lead to bad feelings (for you and others), sub-optimal performance, costly mistakes, and missed opportunities.

Being able to pick up cognitive biases and untangling unhelpful thoughts result in having more clarity, more creativity, more mental agility.

  • Understand what cognitive biases are and how they operate in your brain
  • Identify the types of cognitive biases that you may experience most often
  • Learn how to increase awareness of how cognitive biases influence behaviours and what you can do to change their impact towards mental agility.
