Caroline Adams Miller Bio

Caroline is one of the world's leading experts on the science behind successful goal setting and the use of 'good grit' to achieve hard things. For more than 30 years, she's been sharing her research-backed, actionable strategies to help people cultivate more grit and dig deeper to clarify and achieve their toughest goals.

A Harvard graduate with a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, she has authored six books including Getting Grit (Sounds True 2017) and Creating Your Best Life (Sterling 2009), and teaches at Wharton Business School's Executive Education program.

Angela Duckworth, winner of the 2013 MacArthur Genius grant for her research on grit, said of Caroline: "I don't know anybody who has thought more than Caroline about how to apply the scientific research on grit and achievement to our own lives!" Caroline takes Angela Duckworth's research on grit a step further by distinguishing between good and bad grit - not all grit is created equal.

Caroline is known as the founder of 'The Awethentic Effect' which explains the infectious impact of witnessing or hearing about someone accomplishing a hard goal.

Caroline is a TEDx speaker. Her work has been featured in BBC World News, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC, NPR, and CNN, and more.

Caroline has worked with organizations and associations around the world including: Morgan Stanley, lululemon, The Wharton School/UPENN, RE/MAX, Booz Allen, Young Presidents' Organization, Harvard Law School, American Bankers Association, and Swisse Wellness.
