Dr. Michele Borba, “Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine”
Dr. Michele Borba, bestselling author and a regular NBC contributor, explains why old markers of accomplishment, such as grades and test scores, are no longer reliable predictors of success in the 21st century. Dr. Borba has combed scientific studies on resilience, spoke to dozens of experts in the field, and interviewed more than 100 young people from all walks of life. Now in “Thrivers,” she offers practical, actionable ways to develop Character Strengths (confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism) that will safeguard our kids in the future.
