Group Details

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.

Questions you may have

Where can I buy Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance?

We always suggest you start by checking your local small business bookstores. You can also find this book at nearly all online booksellers. You can also find the book on Amazon and on Audible.

What if I can't make the scheduled days or times?

You can send us an email to reach out if you're interested in another day or time. If we have enough people interested in a new day or time, we'll try to create a group that fits into that schedule.

How do I download Zoom?

You can download Zoom from the website. Look for "Zoom Client for Meetings" for the computer version or look for "Zoom Mobile Apps" for iOS or Android.

Do I have to join with video or can I just use audio?

You are welcome to just call in via a phone number provided, or use Zoom with your camera turned off. The conversations are most engaging when we can all see one another, but that's not always possible for every person.

Does this really cost upwards of $199.00?!

It sure does. We're committed to delivering a value above and beyond any price you pay. If you don’t think this group will bring your more value than the cost, then it simply may not be for you. These groups aren’t for everyone, so don’t sweat it.

Does this really only cost $199.00?!

That’s right! We're committed to delivering a value above and beyond any price you pay. Sometimes we leave some profit opportunity on the table in the name of adding value to as many people as we can.

I have a different question.

If you have a question not answered here, just send us an email and we'll get back to you quickly. Be sure to mention the Growth Group for Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.

The greatest danger you face in this moment is the idea that you will make intentional growth a priority later.
