Complimentary Life Course Series – Leadership Grit: Finding Your Inner Grit During Challenging Times

We are living in a period of unpredictability which none of us have experienced before. There is economic and employment uncertainty, rapidly changing business models, and constantly changing political and social environments – all of these challenges have a direct impact on our lives. During these times, there are those who lean into the headwinds and gain altitude and others who are blown over by them. Which are you? This non-credit life experience course will help to reconnect you with what got you this far – your inner GRIT! Grit is a unique combination of passion and perseverance that cannot be underestimated in these difficult times. It is one of the main factors that will determine who will be frozen by change and who will lean into it.

As a result of having completed this program, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss and unpack the true meaning of Grit
  • Define your personal definition of Grit through analyzing personal successes and accomplishments
  • Gain practical business lessons from experienced business leaders
  • Explore and plan for your next success
  • Develop a plan that leans into the headwinds and increases your likelihood of success in life and business
