Angela Duckworth and Dr. Dan Gottlieb on The Power of Grit
Monday, April 23
Angela Duckworth, Character Lab CEO and University of Pennsylvania professor, has found that grit is the hallmark of high achievers in every domain. Defining grit as the “combination of passion and perseverance for a singularly important goal,” Duckworth has identified scientific evidence that grit can grow and determined that grittiness, not IQ or natural talent, explains why some people succeed while others fail.
Join Angela and WHYY’s Voices in the Family host Dr. Dan Gottlieb for a discussion of success, failure, character and the way psychology plays a role in grit.
