   Author of The Grit Factor 
   Research shows that grit is one of the most critical traits needed for success in today’s world. But what exactly is grit and how does a person develop it? 
   Shannon Huffman Polson is no stranger to grit. At 19, she became the youngest woman to climb Mt. McKinley and later reached the summits of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Kilimanjaro. She was one of the first women to fly the Apache attack helicopter in the US Army and has held leadership positions in the corporate sector. 
   On June 25, Polson will join Harvard Business Review for a live interactive webinar where she will share the latest research on grit, how to develop it, and lessons learned from the remarkable experiences of those who have had to lead through challenging times. 
   She will present: 
   • Why grit can be developed and how to do it 
   • How grit can help you lead through change and with authenticity and passion 
   • Inspiring examples of other women who led in remarkable circumstances 
   • Practical advice for overcoming resistance and leading in extremely challenging conditions 
   Join Shannon Huffman Polson and HBR on June 25 for actionable insights on how to develop grit and improve your leadership skills through difficult times.
