Esther “Woj” Wojcicki is famous for three things: teaching a high school class that has changed thousands of lives, inspiring Silicon Valley legends like Steve Jobs, and raising three daughters who have each become famously successful. Woj made her way to Town Hall to illuminate us on what these three accomplishments have in common—they’re the result of TRICK, Woj’s secret to raising successful people: Trust, Respect, Independence, Collaboration, and Kindness.

Wojcicki offered advice from her book How to Raise Successful People with methods that promote relaxation, respect, and independence. In the face of rising parental anxiety, Woj encouraged the opposite of helicopter parenting. 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. Join Wojcicki for a chance to learn essential lessons for raising, educating, and managing people to their highest potential.

Esther Wojcicki is a professor, author, and a mentor whose work has fostered creativity and critical thinking in her daughters and students alike. Her journalism program at Palo Alto High School is regarded as the best in the United States and has more than 600 students. Many former students from her program have gone on to have an outsized impact on the world including Gady Epstein of the Economist, Noah Sneider of the New York Times, actor James Franco, and Tod Scacerdoti of Yahoo, and more.

Recorded live at The Forum at Town Hall Seattle on June 7, 2019.
