At TRG, we’ve been thinking a lot about leaders who move organizations along the path to sustainability and then drive the them toward the resilience that will be required in the next decade. Developing a resilient organization requires some level of grit and Angela Duckworth in her book, Grit: the Power of Passion and Perseverance
, shares her insight on why talent is hardly a marker of success. Based on her research, grit is a combination of passion and perseverance in achieving goals.

We all watched last week as the Notre Dame cathedral burned. Like so many, I was glued to Twitter throughout my day, checking in for status updates, and found myself intrigued by a thread about “The Long Now”—a concept that someone on Twitter described to me as “planning with a time horizon of centuries …which implies sustainability…”. I found www.longnow.org and my mind was blown: this organization talks in terms of 10,000-year planning horizons. Indeed, Notre Dame was designed to last for centuries. And, it will.

In April, I hosted our inaugural Arts Leadership Book Club, focused on Gillian Tett’s The Silo Effect. More than 30 arts leaders joined me from the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia to discuss Tett’s observations about silos and their effect on arts and cultural organizations.
The Arts Leadership Book Club is designed especially for what I’m beginning to call the “learning or curious” executive leader. The upcoming Wednesday, August 29th book club will focus on Simon Sinek’s book Leaders Eat Last. I’ve chosen it because I see how it could help us, as leaders, discover our role in making the culture of our organizations great.
