Inspiring Greatness Through G.R.I.T.

Creating The Passion To Pursue The Impossible

What inspires the resilience to cross challenging finish lines and achieve world class results in times of incredible challenge and change? How do we create the passion and internal drive to pursue goals that seem impossible? We create this kind of greatness in ourselves and our teammates through G.R.I.T!


When tough times test both our endurance and drive to succeed, when we’re tempted to quit, we push forward by connecting to something greater than ourselves. That’s where the best stories and the biggest successes come from! Through mission-driven innovation and shared passion for goals, and respect for the teammates whose success is inextricably tied to ours, we cultivate G.R.I.T., which turns momentary motivation into long-term inspiration. 

In this keynote, Robyn shares the real secret to her and her teams’ successes in adventure racing and fighting fires. The “we will find a way or make a way” attitude and shared love of their mission, combined with their deep mutual respect, innovative solutions and “white space” thinking, and their intensive preparation for contingencies and conditions, have created a pervasive mindset that enables them to work for each other, as much or more as working with each other. 

KEYNOTE FOCUS: Using Guts, Ingenuity, Integrity, and Teamwork To Pursue And Meet Ambitious Goals

“The hallmark of a world class team is when they’re not only working WITH each other, but FOR each other.” – Robyn

What is G.R.I.T.?

RESPECT for our teammates and the mission
TEAMWORK that makes us “sticky” to our goals and dreams

Robyn’s “Inspiring Greatness Through G.R.I.T” keynote leaves leaders and teams with a deep and impactful understanding of how to create GRIT in your own life and in your team culture. And when you start creating GRIT, you’ll start to inspire GRIT, which is the kind of leader we need more of in organizations in order to help teams meet even their most ambitious goals.
