Eduardo Briceño on The Performance Paradox and Learning Zones

Key Points

  • We need to stop thinking about school as a performance zone. 

  • It is important to feel like you are a part of a learning community.

Eduardo Briceno Podcast The Performance Paradox

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Shawnee Caruthers is joined by Eduardo Briceño, speaker, author and facilitator. His new book, The Performance Paradox: Turning the Power of Mindset into Action, was selected as a “Must-Read” by the Next Big Idea Club, which is curated by Susan Cain, Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Grant, and Dan Pink. This conversation unpacks what happens when we stay in cycles of performance rather than growth and learning.
