My Kairos

My Kairos is dedicated to empowering students to reach their highest potential by providing a learning pathway on how to develop a growth mindset.

The Details

More and more students are struggling post-graduation as they face job insecurity, economic uncertainty, and global competition. It is essential for students to identify what kind of mindset they have and how to thrive under these difficult conditions. So what is the difference between a FIXED and GROWTH mindset?
 
Students with fixed mindsets believe they have limited opportunities because they are not good/smart/talented enough to pursue their highest potential. Inversely, students with growth mindsets, which is said to make up only 40% of students according to Dr. Carol Dweck’s research, believe they can increase self-efficacy by applying the right tools and knowledge. 
 
At My Kairos, we have developed, tested, and completed various modules, interviews, and assessment tools to provide students with a personalized experience through our cloud-based learning management system. We aim to promote and encourage students to become successful high performers by increasing their self awareness through philosophy of success, neuroscience psychology, and personal development tools.
