4 key drivers of a flexible mindset
Today’s world offers unprecedented challenges and opportunities.
We created this online mini-course as a companion to our book Flexible Mindsets in Schools: Channelling Brain Power for Critical Thinking, Complex Problem-Solving and Creativity. We wrote this book because we truly believe that ALL students are capable of being innovators that can solve the world’s problems AND that teachers are the ideal partners in making that possible.
This mini-course is your introduction to the world of Flexible Mindsets. We chose the top 4 drivers of a Flexible Mindset and created a video for each to share highlights of each:
- The Role of Curiosity in Flexible Mindsets Schools (7-minute video)
- The Role of Grappability in Flexible Mindsets Schools (8-minute video)
- The Role of Trusting Relationships in Flexible Mindsets Schools (6-minute video)
- The Role of The 3C’s in Flexible Mindsets Schools (6-minute video)
These key drivers are explored in depth in our book Flexible Mindsets in Schools: Channelling Brain Power for Critical Thinking, Complex Problem-Solving and Creativity.
We invite you to collaborate with us in transforming classrooms into places where both teachers and students are active, resilient and adaptable and where ALL thinkers can thrive!

“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.”
