Growth Mindset

Power up your learning and development! A mindset is our beliefs and how we think, and these beliefs influence how we behave, learn and grow. If we can develop more of a growth mindset then it can help us learn more effectively, and feel better about ourselves too. This activity introduces you to the idea of different mindsets and takes you through some key questions and actions to build your growth mindset.

Photo Voice

Share the voice of your communities! Through this activity, you will explore your communities in a creative way and create a photo collage to share with the world. We humans are a part of different groups – including because of where we live, through shared interests, and online. We share many things with these communities, sometimes without noticing what we have in common and what connections we might have. So, get your camera out and go explore!

It is called ‘Nonviolent Communication’.

Life Skills for Work

Taqaddam life skills for work webinar filmed in December 2020.

Facilitated by Sally and James with special guest Dr. Sophie Alkhaled.

What’s your story?

The most interesting part of a story is not the bit at the end where they get what you want. It’s the journey they go on trying to get it. Thinking about your life as a story with you as the lead character with all the challenges and successes, can help you recognise your strengths and skills and how you might overcome obstacles in your way. This is a great resource to think about life in a different way and ask yourself, how can I make today more beautiful, interesting, magic and connected… ?”
