The Todd Lecture Series continues with "True Grit: The Surprising, and Inspiring, Science of Success," featuring Angela Duckworth.
Angela Duckworth sought to quantitatively measure perseverance and passion. She is the creator of the “Grit Scale,” and the founder and CEO of Character Lab, a nonprofit that advances scientific insights to help children thrive. A 2013 MacArthur Fellow, she has advised the World Bank, NBA and NFL teams, and Fortune 500 CEOs.
Her TED talk, “The Power of Passion and Perseverance” is among the most-viewed of all time. She is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, a NYT bestselling author, and is the co-host, with Stephen Dubner, of the podcast No Stupid Questions.
