This study explored the impact of a coach implementing growth mindset at a faith-based, liberal arts institution in the Midwest. The purpose of this study was to determine if there was any impact on student-athletes being under a coaching philosophy rooted in growth mindset. Results from the study indicate the positive impact of implementing growth mindset from the perspective of both the head coach and the student-athletes. Despite the exploratory nature of the study, the head coach’s philosophy is affirmed as a positive influence to help student-athletes improve in skill and ability.
