As the foremost researcher in the area of correlating mindset with a variety of organizational learning factors, having performed a survey validation study of the Mindset Works, Inc. What's My School Mindset? Survey and the Project for Educational Research That Scales (PERTS) academic mindset survey, the author has discovered links between the philosophical positions one holds and the theory of mind that describes what makes humans different from animals. This book proposes that the ability to recognize and respond to the differences between what we "see" and others "see" is the key reason for individuals, groups, and organizations to succeed or to fail. How we perceive differences and respond to them changes the way our brain develops and how our systems are designed. This book provides strategies for supporting continuous development and growth in individuals, in group dynamics, and in system/organizational development using the most current understanding and propositions of theories of mind. Our theories of physics are expanding through Newtonian, Classical, on to Quantum. Our technologies are expanding from simple tools, to industrialization, to digital information systems, and on to holographic imagery and virtual realities. Biological understandings have grown from magical beliefs about life, through static views of fixed DNA, to cloning, and the potential to regenerate organs and extend life. Our world is in need of an update on the social transformations occurring in human understanding that apply to addressing key issues of our day. This book revisits the concepts discussed in mindset theory and reframes it with a larger, more inclusive potential for understanding our world that empowers our ability for personal choice to improve our lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book helps people to interact to the world around them by giving the tools needed to identify how they perceive themselves and how people they interact with perceive them. Once they find perceptions that are inconsistent with how others view them, the book will guide people how to adjust their way of self-evaluation to help them achieve their highest level of success by giving them a proper framework that will help them interact with those in professional, social and academic environments. These appropriate and proper interactions will result in higher self-esteem and successful outcomes that will help them achieve their life goals as well as leave a positive footprint of healthy thinking with all those they have interacted with in their professional, academic and social environments. -- Karen Lillie, Educator
This book explains what is limiting your ability to make choices that will help you grow and about tearing down those things which limit your choices. It explains how biases, both conscience and unconscious, as well as a variety of predispositions, narrow your allowed choices; how allowed inputs/influences can limit your ability to make decisions that can help you grow. Growth includes anything, from mental and physical fitness, acceptance of others and new ideas, professional success, what you eat, etc. This book gives the reader situational examples that they might relate to and get that moment of revelation. -- David Gerhard, software engineer and entrepreneur
This book discusses mindset and its effects on learning in terms of skill acquisition (curriculum) as well as learning in terms of emotional regulation, managing your own behavior, and achieving one's own goals. This information will help us to plan and manage meaningful interventions based on mindset that will benefit our students, staff and community. I feel that this book would help teachers to better conceptualize their role within a child's education and to better plan for student learning. I think that Dr. Hanson's book would be a great book for our next book study and that there are many people within our district and community who would benefit from reading this book. -- Andrea James-Rocha, MS, BCBA; administrator of the Behavior Intervention Program (ABA program) supporting students who present challenging or maladaptive behaviors in the classroom
Dr. Hanson's book has a wonderful balance of conversational tone and research-based context that makes important academic material approachable to the general public. The writing is an engaging style of "you can do this!" with "if you know and practice this new concept, you can take yourself to the next level." Well done! The balance of footnotes and diagrams exemplifies the niche she has found that is difficult for many of us. Truly good work! -- Anita Henck, PhD, Dean, School of Education, Azusa Pacific University
"Mindset", everyone has one, but is it necessary to develop multiple mindsets if you want to be effective as a leader, as an employee, as an educator, as a student, as a parent, etc.? According to Dr. Hanson you need to develop a learning mindset. In this book, Dr. Hanson details ways to improve yourself and the world around you. The challenges you face personally and professionally require a different mindset than yesterday. Your success in life will be determined by how well you manage your mindset. This book will give you the skills to do just that and more. -- Thomas D. Cairns, DBA, Associate Professor and Fulbright Scholar Azusa Pacific University School of Business and Management; retired Senior VP Human Resource Management NBC Universal
