    It’s an easy, interesting class . I really enjoyed it. Recommend everyone! I liked that the information was consistent and right to the point. I already knew lots of things that was presented there but at the same time I learned a lot too from the other articles about growth mindset . From this course I learned that growth mindset is one that recognizes that each team member is capable , and most importantly can get better. Somebody with a growth mindset would focus on the things they learned in the process and believed that they can go forward even though they fell , but they can improve and try again.
