Webinar: Angela Duckworth on Grit


Corporate Leadership Circle (CLC) Webinar

Tuesday, July 26
12:30-1:30 pm ET


Celebrated psychologist and author Angela Duckworth shares her pioneering research on the secret to outstanding achievement from her New York Times-bestseller, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.

It’s not talent or IQ that Duckworth finds to be the greatest predictor of success. Instead, it’s a blend of passion and persistence that Duckworth calls “grit.” Her insights are designed to help anyone—in business or as parents, students or educators—fulfill their potential.

Please invite your colleagues to participate as well. All participants must be registered.
