The updated edition of the bestselling book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset “Through clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates how our beliefs about our capabilities exert tremendous influence on how we learn and which paths we take in life.”—Bill Gates, GatesNotes 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.

In a world of modern, involved, caring parents, why are so many kids aggressive and cruel? Where is intelligence hidden in the brain, and why does that matter? Why do cross-racial friendships decrease in schools that are more integrated? If 98% of kids think lying is morally wrong, then why do 98% of kids lie? What's the single most important thing that helps infants learn language? NurtureShock is a groundbreaking collaboration between award-winning science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. They argue that when it comes to children, we've mistaken good intentions for good ideas. With impeccable storytelling and razor-sharp analysis, they demonstrate that many of modern society's strategies for nurturing children are in fact backfiring--because key twists in the science have been overlooked. Nothing like a parenting manual, the authors' work is an insightful exploration of themes and issues that transcend children's (and adults') lives.

So much to read, so little time? This brief overview of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success tells you what you need to know—before or after you read Carol Dweck’s book. Crafted and edited with care, Worth Books set the standard for quality and give you the tools you need to be a well-informed reader. This short summary and analysis of Mindset includes: Historical context Chapter-by-chapter overviews Profiles of the main characters Detailed timeline of events Important quotes Fascinating trivia Glossary of terms Supporting material to enhance your understanding of the original work About Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck: Why do some people flourish when faced with a challenge, while others crumble? This is the question that has defined Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck’s decades of research, resulting in her ground-breaking theory of mindset. Dweck believes that talent and intelligence do not tell the full story about one’s ability to achieve. Instead, what determines personal success is whether one has a fixed or growth mindset; the first is a belief that our qualities and strengths cannot be altered, and the second way of thinking supports the idea that they can change over time. Based on meticulous research, and with anecdotes about successful CEOs, athletes, artists, and educators who achieved greatness through attitude as much as ability, Mindset offers new ways of thinking about motivation and personal development. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

'Toad', the famous character in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows is in a very depressed state and his good friends Rat, Mole and Badger, are 'worried that he might do something silly'... First they nursed him. Then they encouraged him. Then they told him to pull himself together... Finally, Badger could stand it no longer. That admirable animal, though long on exhortation, was short on patience. 'Now look here Toad, this can go on no longer', he said sternly. 'There is only one thing left. You must have counselling!' Robert de Board's engaging account of Toad's experience of counselling will capture the imagination of the growing readership of people who are interested in counselling and the counselling process. Written as a real continuation of life on the River Bank, Toad and his friends come to life all over again. Heron, the counsellor, uses the language and ideas of transactional analysis as his counselling method. Through the dialogues which make up the ten sessions, or chapters of the book, Toad learns how to analyse his own feelings and develop his emotional intelligence. He meets his 'rebellious child' and his 'adult' along the way, and by the end of the book, as debonair as ever he was, is setting out on a completely new adventure. As readers learn about Toad, so they can learn about themselves and be encouraged to take the path of psychological growth and development. Best-selling author, Robert de Board says: 'Toad's experiences are based on my own experiences of counselling people over a period of twenty years. Counselling for Toads is really an amalgamation of the many counselling sessions I have held and contains a distillation of the truths I have learnt from practice.' Appropriate for anyone approaching counselling for the first time, whether as a student or as a client, or for the professional counsellor looking for something to recommend to the hesitant, Counselling for Toads will appeal to both children and adults of all ages.

A Washington Post Bestseller Three Principles for Managing—and Avoiding—the Problems of Growth Why is profitable growth so hard to achieve and sustain? Most executives manage their companies as if the solution to that problem lies in the external environment: find an attractive market, formulate the right strategy, win new customers. But when Bain & Company’s Chris Zook and James Allen, authors of the bestselling Profit from the Core, researched this question, they found that when companies fail to achieve their growth targets, 90 percent of the time the root causes are internal, not external—increasing distance from the front lines, loss of accountability, proliferating processes and bureaucracy, to name only a few. What’s more, companies experience a set of predictable internal crises, at predictable stages, as they grow. Even for healthy companies, these crises, if not managed properly, stifle the ability to grow further—and can actively lead to decline. The key insight from Zook and Allen’s research is that managing these choke points requires a “founder’s mentality”—behaviors typically embodied by a bold, ambitious founder—to restore speed, focus, and connection to customers: • An insurgent’s clear mission and purpose • An unambiguous owner mindset • A relentless obsession with the front line Based on the authors’ decade-long study of companies in more than forty countries, The Founder’s Mentality demonstrates the strong relationship between these three traits in companies of all kinds—not just start-ups—and their ability to sustain performance. Through rich analysis and inspiring examples, this book shows how any leader—not only a founder—can instill and leverage a founder’s mentality throughout their organization and find lasting, profitable growth.

There’s a growing pattern of not just individual leaders, but entire cultures rebelling against old and ineffectual ways that have long defined what it means to lead. At the heart of rebel leadership is the emergence of five patterns seen in leading organizations across sectors. Together, these patterns outline a framework for how to successfully meet this turbulent new century and thrive. Rebel Leadership will not only reveal these patterns, but will teach the reader how to tap into the power of this framework and make it their own. More precisely, Rebel Leadership will teach readers: • What lies at the heart of success, no matter how much the environmental conditions might change • How leadership is counterintuitively at its most powerful when it moves across individuals and cultures • That, inevitably, there is only one truly sustainable competitive advantage in uncertain times • Where leaders can find the best source for lowering risk in a changing world • Why a long-term view has less to do with the long-term and far more to do with this moment than you’d ever imagine “There are few skills as important as leadership—a skill we must constantly relearn, every one of us, now more than ever. This book is your guide and compass.” Kevin Guskiewicz, Chancellor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill “There is no more timely or more important book for those who lead in these uncertain times. Uncertainty is our new normal, or as Robertson writes, our new abnormal—leaders either accept it or they perish. This brilliant, forward-thinking book, its vivid examples, and deep insights, will help you to not only survive uncertainty, but to thrive in it.” Tom Koulopoulos, author, Revealing the Invisible and The Gen Z Effect “We live in times of change and rapid adjustment. Many aspects of how we do things will require sensible and well-thought-through revisions. Our approach to leadership must change as well. The question is how. Larry Robertson’s newest book gives that question the needed time and attention it deserves. The result is at once insightful, revealing, and instructive. The lessons are relatable and powerful. The stories make you feel a part of them. And when you finish, you don’t just feel prepared to lead in a new way, you realize he’s already launched you on your journey. Read this book.” Milena Z. Fisher, Ph.D., President, Co-Founder, The Creativity Post “Bob Marley was a Soul Rebel. Ruth Ginsburg was a Gender Rebel. In his new, must-read, book, Larry Robertson challenges us all to embrace ‘Rebel Leadership.’ In the post-Covid era, we’ll need to run toward new ideas about how to create lasting change, and as usual, Larry charts a course we can follow with daring and audacity.” Robert Egger, Founding Board Member, World Central Kitchen “Rebel Leadership offers a refreshing approach to leading in an environment where we can no longer wait to ride out the waves of uncertainty. With a blend of surprising insights, actionable ideas, and vivid storytelling, it’s a must-read for leaders looking for new ways to navigate an ever-changing business landscape.” Teri Evans, former Columnist Desk Editor, Inc. Magazine “Whatever role you fill, whatever game you play, to be at your best, you’ve got to take a bigger view. Seeing beyond your own position, but also beyond the game itself, is so important—never more so than today. When that’s your habit, you see more options, make better decisions, and set yourself up to lead with excellence—no matter what role you play. In Rebel Leadership, Larry Robertson takes the meaning of all this to a whole new level. You’ll come away inspired and wiser for the read. It’s a book worthy of your time and attention, no matter what game you play.” Terry Malone, Football Coach, New Orleans Saints, Michigan Wolverines, Bowling Green Falcons “Leadership isn’t a title needing to be filled. More than ever, it is a true responsibility, both individual and collective. The ripple effects of the choices we make matter as never before. Larry Robertson’s Rebel Leadership reflects this understanding, and opens our minds up to a new and necessary way to approach leadership. He sheds important light on why some organizations are thriving in this new and deeply unpredictable landscape, and offers important and rarified insights into the true sources of organizational power and adaptability. The book will change your view, but more importantly, it will increase your return on leadership.” Janeen Gelbart, CEO, Co-founder, Indiggo/Return on Leadership® “As change and uncertainty accelerate, today’s organizations risk being engulfed by chaos or denying reality. Rebel Leadership gives us the framework to actively engage and build a more adaptable and agile culture in which to thrive. With page-turning prose and compelling stories and examples, Rebel Leadership gives you a new, better, and more impactful view of leadership.” Tripp Eldredge, President, CEO, DMR/Interactive

THE BESTSELLING CLASSIC ON 'FLOW' – THE KEY TO UNLOCKING MEANING, CREATIVITY, PEAK PERFORMANCE, AND TRUE HAPPINESS Legendary psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's famous investigations of "optimal experience" have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi ("the leading researcher into ‘flow states’" —Newsweek) demonstrates the ways this positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance. Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience teaches how, by ordering the information that enters our consciousness, we can discover true happiness, unlock our potential, and greatly improve the quality of our lives. "Explores a happy state of mind called flow, the feeling of complete engagement in a creative or playful activity." —Time
