Excellence – is it only about intelligence?

The content of many coaching sessions deals with the improvement of personal performance and excellence and many people ask themselves, what the qualities are, that make a real life genius. New research shows again it´s not talent and it´s not IQ. Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth calls it grit – and explains more during this TEDx event.

Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. Angela studies non-IQ competencies that predict success both academically
and professionally. Her research populations have included West Point cadets, National Spelling Bee finalists, novice teachers, salespeople, and students.
