Ever wondered what these successful people have in common?

Years of research have shown that successful people, spread across various professions,

nationalities and gender, possess a set of thinking dispositions that is crucial to help them

solve life’s complex problems and achieve success on the world stage.

So what are these thinking dispositions and how can we learn them to help us reach our

personal goals?

About Habits of Mind

habits of mindFormulated by educators Art Costa and Bene Kallick in 1982, the Habits of Mind framework identifies the thinking dispositions of successful people and provides a roadmap on how one can habituate these intelligent behaviours.

Aligned with Future Skills concepts, Habits of Mind is widely deployed in schools around the world and has proven to not only bring about positive behavioural changes among students but has also successfully been adopted as a practical way to approach and do well in particular school subjects and examinations.

Today, the Habits of Mind framework has been adopted by Singapore’s Ministry of Education to groom the top 1% and the brightest students in Singapore under its Gifted Education Programme. Most major business schools around the world are also using the Habits of Minds framework as an approach to general thinking strategies.

Why this matters to you?

In an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, we know that learning facts will not be enough to prepare our children for the challenges ahead. As parents and educators, it is our responsibility to prepare our children for the challenges of the world they will inherit. Therefore, it is become increasingly important to ensure that we “future-ready” our children and help them cultivate the Habits of Mind to enable them to behave intelligently and respond effectively to the VUCA environment.
