WCL AFTER FIVE puts you in the center of the dialogue. Join us as we take on topics that impact your work, community and home life. On April 24th, Kirsten Jones, Peak Performance Coach, will lead us in a discussion of how we develop grit in ourselves and in the next generation.
“In this instant New York Times bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls grit.”
Many women live bifurcated lives: We focus on our own achievements and leadership skills at work and teach the next generation of leaders at home. And, while we are helping our children find their next step in life, we are contemplating our own. In this highly interactive workshop, Kirsten Jones, Peak Performance speaker and coach from Los Angeles, California, will guide us through exercises to take the pressure off the “destination” and open the on-ramp to dream.
Note: Since this is “take your child to work day, the subject matter will also be appropriate for teens aged 13-18, so we invite you to bring your child to WCL, or come alone and focus on your dreams.
