Chappaqua Library presents Angela Duckworth
May 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
In order to get ahead in today’s professional world, one needs more than just talent, one needs the grit and perseverance to stay the course. Such is the advice given by Angela Duckworth, a leading researcher who has interviewed some of society’s most successful individuals — from J.P. Morgan CEO James Dimon and cartoon editor of The New Yorker Robert Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll. In her talk at the Chappaqua Library, Duckworth discusses her findings and offers tips that are detailed in her bestselling book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.
