“The Grit Factor” with Shannon Huffman Polson
January 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Shannon sits down with Phyllis to discuss her new book, The Grit Factor, and her experience in the military. At graduation from Duke University, Shannon was commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in Army Aviation where she became one of the first women to fly Apache helicopters, serving on three continents and leading two flight platoons and a line company. Following her service in the Army, Shannon joined the corporate world. Today, she is the founder of The Grit Institute and author of the new book The Grit Factor: Courage, Resilience and Leadership in the Most Male Dominated Organization in the World where she tells the tales of trailblazing women who learned to lead at the highest levels and how they overcame adversity and learned from their experiences.
