Do You Have GRIT?

Why do some people succeed and others fail? Most people think grit is purely about basic tenacity and persistence. There is a notion that some people get ahead because they are simply gifted, or well-connected, or both.

However, research shows that talent and intellectual ability are greatly overvalued in our culture.

GRIT is about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that mindset—not talent or luck—makes all the difference. Join me and explore the four dimensions of GRIT, Growth, Resilience, Instinct, and Tenacity, and what to do to improve your GRIT.

Learn how applying the four dimensions of GRIT can enhance your leadership competencies. This fast-pace workshop explores how a GRIT mindset enables a leader to excel at delivering results, create a collaborative culture and expertly facilitate change.

GRIT also enriches the mindsets and related skills associated with emotional intelligence, communication flexibility and servant leadership.
