Title: Helping Students Transition From Fear Mindset to Growth Mindset
Lead Presenter: Lapetra Bowman
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: Have you ever witnessed the pangs of a student afraid of making any decision because they are afraid of making the wrong decision? More and more frequently, we are confronted with students afraid to do a deep dive into what going to college should be about: self discovery. When working with students, too often one of the first questions is 'What do you want to major in?' when the question should be 'How do you wish to serve the world?' It is questions like this which prompt an advisor to understand how a student is making academic decisions, from either a fear mindset or a growth mindset. This presentation will teach advisors how to facilitate a holistic advising conversation which taps into developmental advising and strengths-based advising methodologies and prompts students to do a deep dive into who they are personally and how they can use this deeply personal space and subjectivity to inform their academic and professional choices.
