Finding Our Grit
Based on Angela Duckworth’s book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, this seminar and lessons consider the level of our passion and the nature of biblical perseverance. While we discuss areas we are excited and enthused about, the underlying thought here goes to the root of the word passion, which means “to suffer.” Therefore, in order to discover our passion, we must learn more about our inner-self. What we are willing to sacrifice–to give up–in order to achieve our goals? This is where perseverance is critical. There are several assessments available, such as Birkman, Myers-Briggs, Taylor-Johnson, Strengths Based, etc. that are built around learning strengths and weaknesses beneficial in developing our leadership and working together as a team of leaders. This material digs more deeply into areas that involve the passion and perseverance to do what it takes to achieve success. This is where Grit is key.
