How to Build Character

With Angela Duckworth, Pioneering Psychologist and Bestselling Author of GRIT

I look forward to Thursdays now! Hitendra—thank you for sharing your insight and gifts! It is making this pandemic palatable and I feel more peace.

Amy Garza

Thank you, Hitendra, for the amazing gift you are giving to this wonderful community you are building. You have brought love, excellence, and the incredible generosity of spirit to your visionary, powerful, and highly impactful work. That is how I know you are doing God’s work in the very special vineyard where you have been planted.

How to Build Character

Thursday, May 6 (11 AM ET | 8 AM PT | 5 PM CET)
We usually focus on acquiring the technical and functional skills that will make us excellent at what we do. But what about our character? What role does it play in our success, and what are the character qualities we should be concerned with? Can qualities like perseverance and passion be cultivated by intention, or are they mostly fixed?

Join Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa in a conversation with Angela Duckworth, a pioneering psychologist, professor and bestselling author, live on Intersections on Thursday, May 6 (11 am ET | 8 am PT | 5 pm CET).

Angela Duckworth’s pioneering work on Grit was published in her #1 New York Times best-selling book, “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.” She is the founder and CEO of Character Lab, a nonprofit whose mission is to advance scientific insights that help children thrive. She is also the Rosa Lee and Egbert Chang Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, faculty co-director of the Penn-Wharton Behavior Change for Good Initiative, and faculty co-director of Wharton People Analytics. A 2013 MacArthur Fellow, Angela has advised the World Bank, NBA and NFL teams, and Fortune 500 CEOs. Angela’s TED talk is among the most-viewed of all time; and along with Stephen Dubner (co-author of Freakonomics), she is co-host of the podcast No Stupid Questions.

Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another.”—Angela Duckworth

  1. New findings on the true qualities that lead to outstanding achievement
