Did you know that your attitude - or mindset – may be having an acute impact on your job search? According to Dr. Suzette Plaisance Bryan, lecturer in the Executive Master’s Program in the Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas in Dallas, your attitude – or mindset - could be limiting your potential in all areas of your life.
Bryan will be the expert speaker at the May 12 Zoom meeting that is being offered by the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry. Bryan will examine the concept of mindset as developed by Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck and her teams at Harvard and Stanford Universities. In her presentation, Bryan will explore how the simple concept of growth mindset vs. fixed mindset can have profound implications for your life, both professionally and personally.
