On February 17, CEO Trust's PA Chapter met best selling author, and CEO & President at Truth Initiative, Robin Koval to discuss her book "Grit to Great – How Perseverance, Passion, and Pluck Take You From Ordinary To Extraordinary." Robin led a lively discussion on research that shows the single biggest predictor of future achievement is the character trait of grit - a combination of guts, resilience, initiative and tenacity. Robin talked about how important it is to be focused on recruiting a staff with Grit. We discussed some of the characteristics of people with Grit, including: they are not afraid of risk and failures; they don’t mind doing several jobs; they are "nice." Robin also pointed out that a team with Grit will genuinely like each other, and gave examples why that was a great competitive advantage.  

All participants were treated to their own complimentary copy of Robin’s book, which she signed and personalized for all. The breakfast event was hosted by Storeroom Solutions.
