Lead­ers from the worlds of busi­ness, academia, en­ter­tain­ment and pol­i­tics share what’s on their bed­side ta­ble.

Penned by AsianAmer­i­can psy­chol­o­gist Duck­worth, Grit (Scrib­ner, 2016) is a thought­ful ex­plo­ration of why some peo­ple achieve suc­cess and oth­ers don’t. Her re­search in­cludes in­ter­views with suc­cess­ful lead­ers and of­fers in­spi­ra­tion we can all use, es­pe­cially when the world is test­ing the strength in each of us. The au­thor’s story of pas­sion and per­se­ver­ance as a daugh­ter whose fa­ther chal­lenged her to be­come her best self is some­thing we can all re­late to as we eval­u­ate what has driven our own sense of self-de­ter­mi­na­tion. I found my­self re­flect­ing on where my jour­ney has led me—as a phi­lan­thropist and a par­ent—and how peo­ple around me have in­spired me to live a truly pur­pose­ful life. Duck­worth’s per­spec­tive is riv­et­ing and in­sight­ful. Grit is a book my whole com­pany has read.
