It has been a privilege to learn from Jacquie in our work together for the National Mindset Innovation Network. Her knowledge of the literature and best practices surrounding mindset science, combined with her ability to connect with teachers and administrators in diverse settings across the United States, make her a one-of-a-kind resource for educators everywhere. The professional development she delivers is always top-notch - I can’t recommend her work highly enough!
Dr. Beaubien is an extraordinarily effective presenter who spends significant time and effort in getting to know her audience beforehand and tailoring her workshops and events to that audience. In addition, in a field with new research and findings being made available on an almost daily basis, she is amazingly current and incorporates all this new information into her presentations on a virtually real-time basis.
Our organization had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Beaubien in 2015 and her 2018. Her workshop and materials showed the development of the learning mindset field and research over the past three years and was essentially a brand new workshop curated for our group of outstanding educators.
This has been the BEST Professional Development that I have ever received in my 19 years in the field of education!
Opening my mind to growth mindset was really great and the ideas learned will help in my classroom in future years. I am so glad that I had this opportunity and am looking forward to relaying the information to my teacher colleagues at both of my schools this year!
This was an extremely enlightening experience. Being able to collaborate with other educators, from both the private and public sectors, proved so beneficial. We shared ideas and created Growth Mindset lessons to start and use throughout the year.
I’ve sought Jacquie’s expertise on multiple projects since 2012 because it continues to prove extremely valuable. For example, when we were developing the Stir Kinetic Desk – called the “Tesla of desks” by the Wall Street Journal – her insights on the power of small, autonomy-supporting nudges led my team to develop the Whisperbreath™ gentle reminder cue, a key innovation and a crucial feature in influencing user behavior.
Jacquie helped infuse more positive mindset language into our program Sing & Speak 4 Kids, an educational music-based game that supports children with speech and language development. In particular, she helped improve the growth mindset messaging in our parent training interactive video by adding language such as, "making mistakes is a normal part of learning and playing any game, and lots of learning happens when everyone is having fun and challenging themselves!" These subtle changes really make a difference because it is so important to help parents feel that they are capable of supporting their children, especially those with learning disabilities.
