Mindset : the new psychology of success by Carol S Dweck( Book )
112 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 3,356 libraries worldwide
In the course of over twenty years of research, leading motivation and personality psychology expert Carol Dweck has discovered that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk, it actually creates our whole mental world, and explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. Mindsets shape goals, attitudes toward work and relationships, and how we raise our kids, ultimately predicting whether or not we will fulfill our potential. Dweck has found that people have of two basic mindsets: fixed, or growth. Those with fixed mindsets believe that their talents and abilities are set in stone and are unchangeable, and that they must prove themselves over and over, trying to look smart and talented at all costs. Those with a growth mindset, however, know that talents can be developed and that great abilities are built over time. This is the path of opportunity{u2014} and success. Dweck reveals how creative geniuses in all fields{u2014} music, literature, science, sports, business{u2014} apply the growth mindset to achieve results. Perhaps even more important, she shows us how we can change our mindset at any stage of life to achieve true success and fulfillment. She looks across a broad range of applications to help parents, teachers, coaches, and executives see how they can promote a growth mindset
Self-theories : their role in motivation, personality, and development by Carol S Dweck( Book )
27 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 790 libraries worldwide
"This text sheds light on how people work - why they sometimes function well and, at other times, behave in ways that are self-defeating or destructive. Dweck presents her groundbreaking research on adaptive and maladaptive cognitive-motivational patterns and shows: how these patterns originate in people's self-theories; their consequences for the person - for achievement, social relationships, and emotional well-being; their consequences for society, from issues of human potential to stereotyping and intergroup relations; and the experiences that create them." "Throughout, Dweck shows how examining self-theories illuminates basic issues of human motivation, social cognition, personality, the self, mental health, and development. This text is a must-read for researchers in social psychology, child development, and education, and is appropriate for both graduate and senior undergraduate students in these areas."--Jacket

Motivation and self-regulation across the life span by Jutta Heckhausen( Book )
20 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 424 libraries worldwide

Critical elements of motivational systems can be specified and their interrelations understood by charting the origins and the developmental course of motivational processes.

Mindset : the new psychology of success by Carol S Dweck( Sound Recording )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
"Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success--but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals--personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area"--Container

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
Dweck shows how the mindsets of leaders influence their ability to grow on the job and develop successful teams. Leaders with a growth mindset assume talents can be developed and place high value on learning, are open to feedback, and are confident in their ability to cultivate their own and others' abilities. Leaders with a fixed mindset assume basic talents do not change and place greater value on looking smart and are less likely to believe that they or others can change

Motivation and self-regulation across the life span ( file )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
In the last two decades, an approach to the study of motivation has emerged that focuses on specific cognitive and affective mediators of behaviour, in contrast to more general traits or motives. This 'social-cognitive' approach grants goal-oriented motivation its own role in shaping cognition, emotion and behaviour, rather than reducing goal-directed behaviour to cold-blooded information processing or to an enactment of a personality type. This book adds to this process-oriented approach a developmental perspective. Critical elements of motivational systems can be specified and their inter-relations understood by charting the origins and the developmental course of motivational processes. Moreover, a process-oriented approach helps to identify critical transitions and effective developmental interventions. The chapters in this book cover various age groups throughout the life span and stem from four big traditions in motivational psychology: achievement motivation, action theory, the psychology of causal attribution and perceived control, and the psychology of personal causation and intrinsic motivation
