Nobel prize winners and Olympic athletes do not succeed by chance. A growing body of research
is finding that grit, self-control, and a growth mindset can have a strong influence on the academic
achievement and emotional well-being of children and teens. Furthermore, these qualities have
been found to be the “secret sauce” to their success. In this workshop, participants will learn the
latest research on grit, self-control, growth mindset and “failing forward”, as well as strategies that
promote these characteristics. Participants will learn how to bring these strategies to their own
schools. Dr. Baruch-Feldman is the author of the upcoming book titled, The Grit Guide for Teens (July 2017).
