Angela Duckworth Talk: Grit @ Seaside Assembly Hall
Come hear Angela Duckworth speak on Grit at Seaside Assembly Hall on Thursday, March 24 at 4:30pm. Complimentary and open to the public. The Assembly Hall is located on Smolian Cir. across the Lyceum Lawn from the Seaside Neighborhood School.
The Seaside Institute is proud to present pioneering psychologist -- and recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" -- Angela Duckworth to speak about her theory of Grit as a key predictor of success.
Sharing new insights from her landmark research and forthcoming book, Duckworth's presentation on Grit -- the tendency to pursue long-term goals with perseverance and passion -- is complimentary and open to the public next Thursday at the Seaside Assembly Hall.
Duckworth will demonstrate how discipline, willingness to defer gratification, and drive are crucial to achieving a successful life, and what separates "gritty" individuals from others. Using examples from the National Spelling Bee, West Point, Chicago Public Schools and more, Duckworth demonstrates how her studies have shown Grit is the most reliable predictor of performance and success. Her presentation concludes with a summary of her own insights on how to develop Grit.
This event is sure to appeal to parents, educators, athletes, students, business professionals or anyone striving to cultivate Grit in themselves or in others.
