What do most female leaders who thrive in the current business climate have in common? Grit!

Authentic Grit is the passionate pursuit of hard goals that awes and inspires others to become better people, flourish emotionally, take positive risks, and live their best lives. Achieving hard, meaningful goals is one of the most rewarding things women can do personally and professionally. In this talk, Caroline Adams Miller shares the actions, habits and mindset of gritty women around the world, lessons that female leaders can learn at a time when it’s never been more important. Through storytelling and ground-breaking research, Caroline inspires us to be fearless, take bold steps, imagine limitless futures, and have the passion, persistence, humility, and courage to take risks and achieve their toughest goals.

After attending, participants are able to:

  • Assess and amplify their flourishing, using their character strengths;
  • Set goals with evidence-based approaches for best possible outcomes;
  • Develop their environment with a supportive “web of influence” including a “moai” – a

    Mastermind group; and

  • Cultivate a mindset of self-efficiency, resilience, optimism, and grit, as well as commit to help other women through sharing their stories of grit.

Join Ellevate DC and the IFC Women's Network for this special presentation!

All attendees will also receive a copy of Caroline's latest international bestseller: Getting Grit: The Evidence Based Approach to Cultivating Passion, Perseverance, and Purpose.
