Growth Mindset for Athletes, Coaches and Trainers

By Jennifer Purdie

A complete and easy-to-follow guide for inspiring every athlete with the proven power of growth mindset
Some of the most successful and incredible athletes–Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, and Usain Bolt–have one thing in common: growth mindset. But it’s not just for the pros. Growth Mindset for Athletes, Coaches and Trainers reveals how anyone–from Olympians to weekend marathoners–can harness the incredible power of mindset, making it an invaluable tool for inspiring peak athletic performance.
Including strategies for training activities, goal setting, sample feedback, and inspiring examples, this helpful book offers a month-by-month guide for building a positive, growth mindset training regime.
Based on decades of research, the psychology of mindset is the hottest discussion topic in sports psychology. Studies show that growth mindset results in a healthy approach to practice and training, the ability to deal with defeat, and ultimately better long-term performance. This book breaks down the research and studies to offer an accessible, practical tool that athletes, trainers and coaches can use immediately.
With strategies for powering through training plateaus and tips for seeking feedback, this book outlines a new set of skills that helps athletes and their support teams to realize that winning comes from hard work, persistence, and challenge–also known as growth mindset.
