Webinar Overview

Most of us look at people at the top of their game--captains of industry, wielders of political power, movers and shakers in the arts--and attribute their success to genius or uncommon skill or talent. But being successful is not about winning the DNA lottery. Success is a function not of what people are but what they do.
 
Social psychologist Heidi Grant Halvorson, author of Nine Things Successful People Do Differently, has studied what behaviors have the most impact on success. They revolve around making smart choices, using the right strategies, and taking action.
 
 
 
Join Dr. Halvorson on December 13 for an interactive Harvard Business Review webinar. She'll explain nine things that successful people do differently. The good news is that anyone can adopt these strategies for setting and pursuing personal and professional goals. These nine things are remarkably straightforward. Some include:
  • Get specific: Envision clearly what success would look like, including specific actions you'll need to take to make the goal a reality.
  • Seize the moment to act on your goals. Decide in advance when and where you will act.
  • Know exactly how far you have left to go. Monitor your progress regularly.
Dr. Halvorson will share with webinar participants all nine strategies and practical steps for incorporating them into daily life. Notably, her original post on this topic holds the record for the most unique views on HBR's website.
