Drawing on stories and science from her recently published book, Your Hidden Superpowers: How the Whole Truth of Failure Can Change Our Lives, Dr. Becca North will discuss the role that failure-and more broadly, adversity-can play in our success.
In Your Hidden Superpowers, Dr. Becca North rewrites the story we tell ourselves about failure. She puts forth a vision of how shifting our view of failure would change how we lead our lives, yielding profound benefits for us as individuals and as a society by exposing hidden resources within us-unleashing innovations, breakthroughs, joy, meaning, and magic yet to be discovered.
Dr. North's book features personal interviews she conducted with inspiring, well-known individuals from a wide range of fields: poetry and literature, politics, sports, education, business, social media, technology, and, more generally, leadership. The book is filled with stories of failure from some of the world's best-known successes, such as Albert Einstein, Maya Angelou, Steve Jobs, Coach Mike Krzyzewski, and J. K. Rowling. She looks forward to sharing some of those stories in the presentation.
Becca North is a researcher and teacher in the field of psychology. Her research is in the area of happiness and well-being. A big question in her research is: How can negative experiences foster positive psychological change? She has taught at several colleges and universities, including Southwestern University, the University of Texas, and Huston-Tillotson University.
