Debi Roberts presents
"Mindsets: How TOC Extends Dwek’s Original Work"

About the webinar:   What do we really mean by win-win thinking and what obstacles prevent us as individuals,  team members and business communities from truly deploying, engaging and benefiting from win-win thinking? Initially building on Dwek’s assertion that individuals can have fixed or growth mindsets, this webinar will explore how TOC exposes two more mindsets; ‘win-win’ and ‘scarcity’.  Focusing on the ‘scarcity’ mindset, delegates will develop a deeper understanding of its negative impact on the working relationships of staff as well as the culture of success and learning.  Finally, this webinar will consider how TOC provides a scaffold for developing and supporting the mindsets we want and need to develop, for ourselves and our communities. Whether your greater need is to improve communication and cooperation between staff or enhance employees or students’ attitude and aptitude, this thought provoking exploration into mindsets is likely to be of great interest.  

About the presenter:  Having set up and run a small enrichment school, Roberts' work came to the attention of the statutory agencies.  In 2007 she started working with the police, and Fire Service creating TOC programmes for both to use with disaffected youths and their families in relation to self- esteem and alcohol misuse.  Wanting to critically explore the impact of TOC, Roberts went back to school.  She now has a Maters in Education, receiving a distinction for her year's research into the impact TOC has on the emotional literacy of 10 years olds in main stream school.  Her research programme was based on her original TOC programme (used in the enrichment school), that combined TOC with story, to develop student’s conflict resolution skills and enhance behaviour management.  This programme and her MA research form the basis for Robert’s first book, Storytelling for Better Behaviour. Roberts earlier research has led her to investigate group intelligence and how TOC can support improved group intelligence.
