Esther Wojcicki unveils her secret to raising successful people, TRICK—Trust, Respect, Independence, Collaboration and Kindness. Simple lessons, but the results are radical.
Wojcicki, “Woj” to her many friends and admirers, is famous for three things: teaching a high school class that has changed the lives of thousands of kids, inspiring Silicon Valley legends like Steve Jobs, and raising three daughters who have each become famously successful. Her methods are the opposite of helicopter parenting. As we face an epidemic of parental anxiety, Woj is here to say: relax. Talk to infants as if they are adults. Allow teenagers to pick projects that relate to the real world and their own passions, and let them figure out how to complete them. Above all, let your child lead. How to Raise Successful People offers essential lessons for raising, educating and managing people to their highest potential.
A book signing follows the event.
