What We're Reading & Listening To


In addition to talent, there’s something else that author Angela Duckworth argues is essential for success: grit—the capacity to work hard and stay focused. In her New York Times bestseller, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance she shares both the science and the real-life examples of what grit is and what it looks like in the lives of high achievers. She also recently sat down with Knowledge@Wharton for a podcast interview in which she responds to the question “Is it nature or nurture?” (the answer is both, by the way). She also explores how her personal experience as a teacher influenced her thinking about the notion of grit and the role technology and social media can play in enabling human development.
