Flip the Switch: Help Students Rewrite their Subconscious Thoughts and Create a Growth Mindset

Session Description
Did you know that our subconscious thoughts about ourselves and the world are developed by age 7? This mindset affects every aspect of a person’s life and can determine how they respond to challenges and failure. Fortunately, mindset is just a set of habits and can be changed.

All of your interactions, both written and verbal, affect students’ mindsets, for better or for worse.

In this workshop, you will learn how subconscious programming works and how to interact with your students in ways that:

  • helps rewrite their programming
  • promotes a growth mindset
  • encourages them to persist through their challenges
