Educational Program: Building Organizational Grit*

Building Organizational Grit*

Presented by Beccy Cooke, President & Founder, Round Tableau

What determines who succeeds when goals are tough? Why do people with lots of potential fail to meet their goals? Based on the best-selling book by Angela Duckworth, we will explore how grit, the combination of passion and perseverance, are absolutely essential to succeeding in long-term and difficult pursuits. Most of us work in environments where commitment to long-term goals is required and we see those around us struggle to embrace and have energy for these goals. This discussion will cover how we can help our leadership teams and organizations to succeed.

Credit Hours

*The meeting offers 1 PDC for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP, and 1 hour of HR (General) credit towards PHR and SPHR recertification requirements.
