GROWTH MINDSET FOR WORK
The introduction of Growth Mindset techniques are being used in schools around the world. However, we believe that it is vital to introduce when helping young people prepare for the future and find world.
If you're without work it can often feel like everything is 'stuck'. But at Facework, we help students recognise their current mindset, what has shaped it, how can they break free and develop resilience and a growth mindset. We also look at issues of mental health, as identifying your current - sometimes fixed - mindset, brings with it deep feelings of self-worth, motivation and even parental pressure.
Facework takes a deep, empathetic approach, as well as exploring cultural and generational factors. We also look at the rights of the individual to find the work that gives them identity, meaning and economic independence. This can be the trigger for helping students reflect on their mindset and negative feelings and see how they can change.
“It is hard to encourage students to prepare for the jobs of the future and follow their heart’s desire, if they are held hostage by the fixed Mindset and the handed-down expectations from those who hold on to the past"

In all our work of developing Facework Chapters and working with young people to create dynamic employability resources we want to tackle negative and fixed Mindset and help students, teachers, employers and parents develop a Growth "Yes We Can" mindset.
“The mind is just like a muscle - the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand.You must have a level of discontent to feel the urge to want to grow."
