GRIT: THE POWER OF PASSION + PERSEVERANCE. ANGELA DUCKWORTH.
Talent is actually not the biggest factor or multiplier of success. Instead, a unique combination of passion and perseverance (AKA ‘grit’) actually seem to be far better predictors of success.
LeaderLounge is a monthly forum where Vancouver leaders (and aspiring leaders) gather to increase their Leadership Quotient (LQ*).
We do this by:
- Studying key themes and insights of top-ranked business books
- Analysing leadership case studies by global and local brands
- Exchanging experience and engaging in meaningful discussions
*LQ = IQ + EQ + XQ
IQ – competence — aptitude, knowledge, capacity, dexterity, judgement, problem-solving. Becoming smart about the things that matter.
EQ – character — work ethic, honesty, fairness, balance, humility, lifelong learning, empathy, passion, compassion. Becoming a better person on the qualities that count.
XQ – capability — visioning, communicating, coaching, motivating, influencing, negotiating, selecting, de-selecting, prioritizing, executing.
At Smart Savvy, we meet a lot of great leaders. Leaders who stand apart for their ability to think, communicate, influence, mentor, strategize deliver results and ignite passion. We think they deserve a stage. Here are some of our past and future presenters.
WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
“Smart Savvy is walking the talk by hosting their #leaderlounge series – applicable knowledge wrapped in authentic networking and topped with a martini! I think they call that a triple play.”Anne Farrer
“A much needed break in the week that moves your mind from routine to exploring possibility.”Tyrone Lingley
“Good networking opportunity; great to learn how other leaders face/address challenges.”Ryan Ashton
LEADERS ARE LEARNERS WORKSHOP SERIES
Leaders are Learners Workshops are delivered by Smart Savvy’s network of #standapart leaders that we have come to know and respect. These skills enhancement workshops are guaranteed to serve-up solid insights and bolster your ability to lead with confidence and influence. Each workshop is skill-specific and results-oriented to provide you with quality ‘schooling’ and facilitated peer discussion.
You’ll access local talent and become a more proficient leader who’s ready to accelerate business results and personal growth. You’ll also gain exclusive access to presentation materials and engage in meaningful conversation (aka ‘network’) over our featured local beverage of the month.
LEADERS ARE READERS WORKSHOP SERIES
Leaders Are Readers Book Series allow you to experience all the benefits of reading a top-ranked business book without having to do so (we’re all busy right?). Our team prepares an in-depth presentation of a carefully selected book and walks through key themes, learnings, insights and applications. We also invite top industry leaders to drive things home with a case-study.
What do I get? You’ll get a detailed summary of the book as well as a Quick Fact Book Brief (one pager). This series provides a great way to stay current, well-read and in-the-know when your time is in high-demand.
