Thank you to all who attended our webinar last week with Ms Cheryl Chia.

Here are the 3 key takeaways: 

1) Understanding Mindset:

  • A set of beliefs, thinking and attitude that determines your outlook and behaviours
  • Not always accurate
  • A product of your experiences and interactions
  • Changeable

2) Strategies for a Healthy Learning Mindset:

  • Get the purpose right – Study to learn, not for exams
  • Understand that the brain is an organ of use
  • Track growth to see real evidence of improvement
  • Investigate self-talk, especially if they are unhelpful
  • Reframe negative self-talk to positive thoughts

3) Need Constant Practice: 

  • Positive self-talk does not happen overnight
  • These skills require constant practice to be developed
