Beyond courage and beyond perseverance, lies the concept of grit. Something that can develop regardless of intelligence or fate. Professionals and teachers around the world are saying that the number one thing to a successful future is grit. Angela Duckworth says it so beautifully when she describes grit as "sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality.” In this talk, Alison Scott takes the viewer on a journey of grit - where it comes from, how it develops, and what we as professionals and parents can do to instill this essential value into our children's lives.
