Outwork, Outlast, Outshine!


Outwork, Outlast, Outshine: You Don't Have to be the Brightest to Reach the Farthest.  Emerging evidence supports the startling reality that IQ score, GPA and other traditionally-venerated measures of scholastic achievement are not the greatest predictors of long-term success for students and professionals.  Rather, traits like grit and resilience, are.  Far too many Present and former students have bought into the deception that intelligence and talent are fixed, that you either have “it” or you don’t, and thus select themselves out of the race to success.  even once they become professionals they continue to under-perform relative to their overall potential and create false hierarchies wherein they defer to others with better pedigree, parentage, or patronage.  In this presentation, Dr. Núñez debunks the “genius myth” and explains that what sets apart successful people is not their “inherent talent” but their intrinsically persistent effort, buoyant response to setbacks, and natural giftedness.  Studies demonstrate that these skills can be taught and developed in every individual.  we can each do abundantly more with what we have been given.
