Angela DuckworthDr. Angela Duckworth

The debate has raged for decades. Are leaders born, or can they be made? If it is possible to create them, what are the core qualities and characteristics leaders need to be steeped in? Dr. Duckworth has vast insight into the intangible qualities and characteristics that determine professional and academic success. She has fundamentally and empirically proven that leaders can in fact be made, and has distinguished what is at the origin of successful leaders.

The implications of this are profound for finding, grooming, and keeping talent—what we have found to be one of the three biggest concerns of senior executives today.

Founded in 1862 as a patriotic society to support the Union and the policies of President Abraham Lincoln, The Union League of Philadelphia laid the philosophical foundation of other Union Leagues across a nation torn by civil war. The League has hosted US presidents, heads of state, industrialists, entertainers and dignitaries from around the globe and has proudly supported the American military in each conflict since the Civil War. The Union League continues to be driven by its founding motto, Amor Patriae Ducit or Love of Country Leads.

In the United States, The Ritz-Carlton Investing Company was established by Albert Keller who bought and franchised the name. In the early 1900s, several hotels were known as The Ritz-Carlton, in places such as Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Atlantic City and Boca Raton. However, by 1940 none of the hotels were operating except The Ritz-Carlton, Boston. The hotel embodies the finest luxury experience, Yankee ingenuity and Boston social sensibilities. The standards of service, dining and facilities of this Boston landmark served as a benchmark for all future Ritz-Carlton hotels and resorts worldwide.
