We all need grit right now.
We’ve been in lockdown for six months with untold losses in our communities. Financially, many have lost or fear losing their source of income. The uncertainty of what’s ahead with life, work, and school is taking its toll.
Shannon Polson, friend of Tiller Money and our founder Peter’s wife, launched a new book this week, “The Grit Factor: Courage, Resilience, and Leadership in the Most Male-Dominated Organization in the World.”
The Grit Factor was just published by Harvard Business Review Press. About Shannon, HBR writes:
At age nineteen, Shannon Huffman Polson became the youngest woman ever to climb Denali, the highest mountain in North America. She went on to reach the summits of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Kilimanjaro and spent more than a decade traveling the world. Yet it was during her experience serving as one of the Army’s first female attack helicopter pilots, and eventually leading an Apache flight platoon on deployment to Bosnia-Herzegovina, that she learned the lessons of leadership that forever changed her life.
Peter hosted an exclusive Q&A with Shannon for the Tiller Money community on what grit means for us at this moment.
