ABOUT CAROL S. DWECK, Ph.D.
Her research focuses on why people succeed and on how to foster their success. More specifically, her work has highlighted the critical role of mindsets in business, sports, and education, and for self-regulation and persistence on difficult tasks in general. In addition, she has shown how praise for ability or talent can undermine motivation and learning. Her recent book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success (published by Random House) has been widely acclaimed and is being translated into 17 languages.
She has also co-developed Brainology (www.brainology.us), an award winning online program that helps middle school and high school students gain confidence and motivation to learn by teaching them about the brain, how to strengthen it, and how to apply brain-friendly study skills.
