Why You Should Embrace a Growth Mindset
Greetings, Ninja!

Let’s talk about your talents.

Are they innate gifts? Or do you believe they’re the product of hard work, risk-taking, learning from failures, and feedback from your peers and mentors?

If you’re in the latter camp, congrats! You have a growth mindset, which is crucial to your personal and professional development. If you’re struggling with the concept, don’t fret. Growth of any kind takes time. Afterall, they don’t call them “growing pains” because they tickle.

We’ve curated a super-inspiring collection of articles on the concept of the growth mindset, and we’re planning to tackle the topic at upcoming Admingling events in Seattle, Washington DC, Denver, and Chicago.  

Come out, join the conversation, meet local Ninjas, and enjoy tasty drinks and bites!

See you there?

Rock on!
