CPI TRAININGS

Shout out to all the school districts who had us out for CPI training. Rebekah and I had so much fun with each of you! CPI teaches professionals the skills to identify, prevent and de-escalate crises in the school. With distinct levels of training, CPI offers solutions for every role and risk level in every organization. So glad to have all of HONDA's districts participate !!!

What is growth mindset and why is it a focus in our schools?

A growth mindset is the foundation of every learning environment. Students with a growth mindset are proven to be happier and achieve more in life. They are more willing to take on new challenges, have a passion for learning, and view failure as an opportunity for learning and growth. A growth mindset is essential for you to become a successful lifelong learner, and it is something you can develop with practice.

How to Reframe Behavior

What is the difference between a Fixed Mindset and a Growth Mindset?

Fixed Mindset:

  • I like my work to be easy.
  • I don’t like to try a challenge.
  • I want people to praise me for how clever I am.
  • I believe I cannot change how clever I am.
  • I don’t like to try new things because I won’t be very good at it.
  • I give up easily.

Growth Mindset:

  • I never give up.
  • I like my work to be difficult – it means I am learning.
  • I love challenges.
  • I want people to praise me for the effort I put into my work.
  • I believe I can get more intelligent by working hard.
  • I feel clever when I’m learning something new.
  • I learn from my mistakes.
