Mindset Works consults with schools and districts to cultivate growth mindset school systems that allow all students to grow and thrive. We take time to understand the unique challenges each faces, and then customize workshops for each setting. Mindset Works has worked in hundreds of districts across the country to bring leaders and educators deep mindset expertise, the spirit of collaboration, and an extensive toolkit of resources and tools to deliver sustainable results.

 

 

Using reflection, discussion, activities, games, videos, and practical tools and resources, we can promise an interactive session that has lasting impact for both immediate and future change. Check out Eduardo Briceño's TEDx talk for a sample of our services!
