NAA16 keynote speaker Dr. Angela Duckworth, a psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania and a MacArthur "Genius" fellow, recently met with Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.
I was born in Washington state and spent most of my life in the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by Seattle Seahawks fans. In 2006, I moved to the East Coast and married into a family who bleeds the green of the Philadelphia Eagles. Since then, I've had two favorite bird teams. The past couple of years have been especially interesting, not only because these two bird teams have gone head to head several times, but because of the focus on the leadership provided by the coaches of each organization.
