Let’s talk about #Mindset: a psychological perspective

Published: 21st Dec, 2020

AEC Podcast episode from Gerry Fitzpatrick (coach, educator and sports psychologist) and Vourneen Ryan (member of the Working Group on Entrepreneurial mind-set for musicians). Vourneen teaches Career Strategy as well as Flute in RIAM. 

In this episode Gerry introduces us to the fundamentals of mindset – contrasting “growth” and “fixed” mindsets. A growth mindset is crucial for performers (in sports and the arts) in order to become self compassionate, self aware and mindful of their mentality in relation to performing, work, life and sports.

This is an episode not to be missed if you are fascinated with the human condition and how we can achieve our full potential in our careers as performing artists and creative entrepreneurs.
