ABOUT THE SESSION
Who succeeds in life? In this talk, Angela Duckworth presents her influential work on grit — the tendency to pursue long-term goals with perseverance and passion. She describes the predictive power of grit for performance in a variety of fascinating contexts. Duckworth has studied groups like the West Point cadets, National Spelling Bee competitors, rookie teachers, students from the Chicago Public Schools — all people performing in high-stress environments — to look at the correlation between grit and achievement. Drawing from these examples, and others, Duckworth explores:
- What makes gritty individuals different from others
- How grit can be instilled and cultivated by anyone, anywhere, and at any time in life
