Grit – The Power of Passion and Perseverance – Angela Duckworth, 2016

University of Pennsylvania Professor of Psychology Angela Duckworth has chosen 'grit' as her specialist area of interest.

University of Pennsylvania Professor of Psychology Angela Duckworth has chosen 'grit' as her specialist area of interest.  

She defines it as the mix of passion and perseverance towards achieving a longer-term goal. It is, simply put, the ability to keep going, in spite of potential setbacks, in the pursuit of a larger objective.  Given the increasing fluidity of our work and commercial landscapes, we think this is an important piece of work as it provides research behind what it takes to stay constant and committed towards a higher goal.  

Duckworth’s work is worth keeping sight of as we all attempt to stay on task and focussed towards excellence and mastery in the future of work.
