Global Leadership: Grit and Persistence

On 29 Ocotober I did a blog entry on the importance of persistence to success.  In it I highlighted Angela Lee Duckworth's research and work.

Just last Friday Professor Michael Roberto highlighted some additional recent published work on this subject this time focusing on how children succeed.  The author, Paul Tough, ultimately argues we aren't doing enough to encourage this quality in children.  Professor Roberto argues it's also true in adolescents and adults,.

Professor Michael Roberto's Blog: The Power of Grit: Paul Tough has written a thought-provoking new book titled, How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character .
