Embracing a Growth Mindset Recording

In this video, recorded in April 2023, Graduate Assistant Darby Ableman of the Office of Undergraduate Research & Fellowships provides tips for embracing opportunities to grow, develop personally and professionally, and overcome challenges along the way to growth, such as perfectionism.

In UNL’s Huskerwork professional development curriculum, Graduate Assistant Greyson Holliday defines “growth mindset” as “believing your knowledge, abilities and strengths are dynamic and can be grown and developed over time. However, hard work alone is not always what leads to success. Growth Mindset calls us to embrace mistakes and setbacks as part of the natural learning process and to leverage those experiences to increase your possibility for success the next time.”
