Grit: Let's Discuss One of 2016's Most Talked-about Books

Phoenix, AZ • November 16, 2016

Everyone is talking about Angela Duckworth's best-seller Grit. She writes that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.” What do you think? Please join us for Ellevate's November 16 group discussion at Changing Hands Phoenix.

Drawing 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.

Among Grit’s most valuable insights:

*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

The discussion will take place at the meeting room at Changing Hands Phoenix (an exceptional independent book store). Bar available. Snacks provided.
