The GRIT PROJECT

Inspiring and equipping leadership for lives that matter

What is a life that matters? Meaningful work, loving relationships and opportunities for contribution and challenge. Leaders are all those working with real people in real life: managers, teachers, coaches, and parents.You find them in uniform, in offices, in school and at soccer games. What you have in common: the need to work with people to make things happen, and the desire to live and create a life that matters at work and at home.
