Praise / reward the process

The talk, by Carol Dweck, embedded below highlights some interesting initiatives for praising / rewarding people. Why not try and start out this year doing this:
# 1: Stop praising / rewarding a person’s intelligence and talent.
# 2: Start praising / rewarding process, for example by a) giving grades such as “not yet”, b) praising / rewarding a person’s improvement / progress from period A to period B, c) praising / rewarding a person’s focus on a topic, d) praising / rewarding a person’s perseverance, and/or e) praising / rewarding the effort a person makes to learn something / reach a certain goal.
