On October 5 more than 230 industry professionals met at the Yale Club in New York City for a PLUS Foundation Women’s Leadership Network Event headlined by Linda Kaplan Thaler.

She spoke on “Grit to Great: How Perseverance, Passion, and Pluck Take You from Ordinary to Extraordinary,” discussing why those who develop and possess the character traits of grit (Guts, Resilience, Initiative and Tenacity) outperform individuals with genius IQ’s, virtuoso talent, unlimited financial resources or a private school education.
