This book completely changed my relationship with feedback and altered the trajectory of my confidence. Instead of seeing every task as a test I had to pass in order to prove that I was worthy, I realized I only had to change my mindset and see the tasks before me as opportunities to learn and grow. We, humans, are capable of extraordinary things, but the biggest blocker to achieving our full potential often lies in our mindset, not our externalities. If you’ve ever read my newsletter or blog, you’ll hear me dropping Carol Dweck’s name every other week because that’s how much of an impact her research has had on me. (And yes, there is a robust section dedicated to adopting the right mindset in my book The Making of a Manager, as well).
