Leading From Any Seat: Stories from the Cockpit
Thursday, March 22, 2018
10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Tenacity, determination, grit and an innate ability to lead has defined Shannon Huffman Polson. An adventurous young woman, she summited Mount McKinley (now Denali) and, at the time, was the youngest woman to complete the attempt. From there, she was commissioned in the Army and was one of the first women to fly the Apache attack helicopter. Through her leadership and aviation skills she earned the right to lead two flight platoons and was the first woman to command an Apache flight company in the 2nd Infantry Division. With real-world stories and insights from in and out of the cockpit, she offers tangible leadership lessons for audience members to seek out their own targets and, where passion and purpose intersect, incorporate them into their own professional lives. By examining everyday leadership and situational challenges, Shannon empowers others to effectively lead and thrive in any dynamic environment.Jeff Henderson

Leveraging Generational Diversity
Friday, March 23, 2018
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Demographic shifts are revolutionizing the workforce. 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every day, Gen Xers are stepping into key leadership roles, Millennials are buying homes, having children and entering management and Gen Z is walking into work for the first time. Four distinct generations are working shoulder to shoulder and each generation brings with them a unique set of perspectives, priorities and work styles. Organizations are feeling the pain of generational differences as they struggle to manage productivity and morale while maintaining high standards of quality and service in an unpredictable economy. This session will give you the tools to convert generational diversity from an obstacle into an opportunity.
