GRIT: The power of passion and perseverance!
SHOCK & AWE: what if you learned that YOUR success was not based on where you were born, who your parents were, where you went to school (or who you went to school with), how much money was in your bank account or any other random variable. It all comes down to YOU – do you have GRIT: do you have the passion and perseverance to keep your career going (and growing) despite all the obstacles.
Our literary “hero” Angela Duckworth dives deep into success: who make it? who doesn’t? why? She starts with the story of getting into West Point – 14,000 high school juniors start the application process, it’s winnowed down to 4,000, then 2,500 who meet the rigorous academic and physical standards – and 1,200 are finally admitted. Despite all of the interviews, the testing, the grading, the leadership scores, the visits and stories of team captains and high GPA’s – still 20% will drop out.
Why? That’s EXACTLY what we’ll be chatting informally over a glass of your favorite beverage. (You don’t need to read the book!). We’ll also discuss ways to improve your own “GRIT Score” as we barrel into 2022!
