Discover the Secret to Outstanding Achievement
Are you striving to succeed?
Whether you are an employee or employer; entrepreneur or intrapreneur; educator or student, everyone wants outstanding achievement. Most people believe that in order to really succeed you’ve got to have lots of talent and luck. That’s not the case. The secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and perseverance called Grit.
In this Virtual Master Class, you will join other like-minded people to take a deep dive into Angela Duckworth’s New York Times Best Selling book Grit the Power of Passion and Perseverance. In her book, Angela draws on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Duckworth, now a celebrated researcher and professor, describes her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.
In Grit, she takes readers into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers—from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.
In this Virtual Master Class you will discover:
- Why any effort you make ultimately counts twice toward your goal
- How grit can be learned, regardless of I.Q. or circumstances
- How lifelong interest is triggered
- How much of optimal practice is suffering and how much ecstasy
- Which is better for your child—a warm embrace or high standards
- The magic of the Hard Thing Rule
Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that—not talent or luck—makes all the difference. Sign-up for this life-changing Virtual Master Class at this special introductory rate!
