What they have to say about us
It is axiomatic that higher education is going through a very challenging time. Shannon Polly came to the Landing School of Boatbuilding & Design at a pivotal time for the school. The Board of Trustees needed to evaluate strategic alternatives for this small, accredited career oriented college in the marine industry. (more…)
Over the years I have collaborated with professional coaches and leadership trainers who are talented, intelligent and get results. Shannon Polly is one of the most remarkable professionals I have experienced. Shannon possesses a dazzling array of strengths which she uses to help her clients achieve tangible results. (more…)
Before I met Shannon I had a total phobia of public speaking. She gave me techniques to help me calm my nerves before taking to the stage, precise tips on how a good speaker stands and “performs” on stage, and the support and confidence to make me believe I could do this thing successfully. (more…)
Ms. Polly co-facilitated our Appreciative Inquiry summit in order to help us determine our next steps after a layoff of staff. She was prepared and knowledgeable, and did a tremendous amount of organizational work both before and after the summit. (more…)

Character Strengths Matter: How to Live a Full Life
“My friend, Chris Peterson, would have loved this book. It brings to life with personal stories, practical recommendations,wisdom, and humor the dry scholarship that he (with an assist from me) did in the ‘Classification of Strengths and Virtues.’ Chris was very down-to-earth and I am sure he would have concurred in my enthusiastically recommending this book to everyone who works with character strengths in the real world.”
