Define the keystone habit in your organization in order to improve the grit of employees.
In this book, there is a study that was done on cadets at West Point Military Academy. Researchers found that grade point averages, physical aptitude, military abilities, and self-discipline do not have as much importance as grit, which they define as the tendency to work “strenuously toward challenges, maintaining effort and interest over years despite failure, adversity, and plateaus in progress.”
A keystone habit in an organization is something that every worker can act on, something that unites people and gives focus to the whole group. Such a keystone habit can be safety. Safety itself does not improve productivity, income, or anything that investors desire. But this creates a habit of excellence, and individuals in the company feel that they have devoted themselves to something bigger.
