Here's just a bit more about the group, along with the full schedule so you can gauge if it's a good fit for you.
This Growth Group is designed to help participants dig into their own grit potential. Once we have examined our own potential, we can then point that grit to purpose. You will meet weekly for one hour with a group of like-minded people as we study the book Grit, by Dr. Angela Duckworth. We will explore the range of research and stories shared throughout the book as well as walk through a number of exercises that help you define your own grit and where you would like that grit to take you.
This book will encourage you to recognize the grit you have built so far in your life and it will catapult you into action moving forward. Grit explores what factors predict success and how we can all access our natural potential, build upon it, and execute those big dreams that keep us going. Additionally, we all have the opportunity to be leaders (with or without titles). Grit will inspire you in how you lead the people in your life.
About the content
In this instant New York Times bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.”
Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research, Angela explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success.
Angela has found that grit—a combination of passion and perseverance for a singularly important goal—is the hallmark of high achievers in every domain. She’s also found scientific evidence that grit can grow . . .
Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, 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.
