LEADERSHIP FOR LIVES THAT MATTER


SHANNON HUFFMAN POLSON

KEYNOTE SPEAKER, AUTHOR, VETERAN

speaking and writing about leadership and grit

 
 

How does your organization lead through change, overcome resistance, and lead with authenticity and passion? What would it take for your team to find its purpose? How can your people connect to their own sense of grit? What would be different if your employees accepted the courage of ownership? 

As one of the first women to fly the Apache helicopter in the U.S. Army, Polson's career spans almost a decade as an Army officer and attack aviation leader around the globe, as well as five years leading and managing in the corporate sector at Guidant and Microsoft. Polson is committed to leadership for lives that matter.

Using dramatic storytelling alongside practical lessons and real- life takeaways, Polson uses her experience in the cockpit and the boardroom to speak and write leading companies and organizations across the country and around the world  to overcome resistance, connect to their core purpose, lead from the heart and commit to courageous ownership under the most challenging conditions.

She and her husband Peter have two energetic sons.
