I first met Lucy five years ago on a “Managing Personal Change Effectively” course organised by CABA, the Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association, which Lucy presented. It was the first time that a personal development course resonated with me as she introduced me to Carol Dweck’s work on the growth mindset and neuroscience concepts. This inspired me to start my personal development journey, which helped bring about the “Reframe & Reset Your Career” podcast so thank you Lucy!

Lucy is also a big fan of Dorie Clark and she showed one of Dorie’s talks on the course. This was the first time that I had heard of Dorie’s work, which inspired me to reach out to Dorie, we connected and Dorie kindly agreed to be a future guest on the podcast!

Lucy told me “this work by Carol Dweck was essentially postulating that it’s the way that we approach challenge and difficulty in life that really leads to the outcome. So are we going to approach it with a mindset that is what she calls fixed, this idea of really not seeing the opportunity. Also this concept of seeing failure as the end … people with a growth mindset they will also feel disappointed, hurt and sad when they fail but what they do differently is to pick themselves up and say yes this hurts this feels really uncomfortable, I don’t want to fail but they then start asking themselves I wonder what I can do differently next time, who can I talk to, what resources can I draw on, what can I learn and who can I learn it from”
