What’s the one real driver of success? Find out on June 3rd from the woman who proved it.

It’s not IQ. Not talent. Not luck. Not work….

But Grit.

This idea, that passion and perseverance surpass arguably all other traits in work and life, defies pretty much every theory of success.

Little wonder that its author and her book are storming the barricades of managerial, educational, athletic and military wisdom. But Angela Duckworth is no lightweight with a flakey book on ‘leadership.’

She’s a MacArthur “Genius”, a professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, an advisor to the White House and the World Bank, and her TedTalk has been viewed 8 million times. Grit

Her new book, Grit, has been praised by everyone from Amy Cuddy and Malcolm Gladwell, to Susan Cain and Daniel Pink, who called it “a contemporary classic.”

Their rave reviews aren’t just for the originality of her view, but for the scientific validation of it.

So please join us at the June 3rd Ramsay Luncheon to hear a true pioneer discuss her – and what can be our – breakthrough in what truly drives success.
