Growth mindset was developed by psychologist Carol Dweck.
According to her, people in this mindset “believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work.” By teaching this model, the client will learn that if they put their mind to it and work hard, they can persevere. They also view
failures as an opportunity to grow and improve their skills. This mindset will inherently also increase one’s self-esteem.
