Annual Members Meeting & Presentation: Building Emotional Fitness to Lead During Difficult Times



This Chapter Meeting will also serve as our Annual Members Meeting (AMM). This information will be covered in the first part of the meeting.


Your company is preparing for a merger. 40% of positions will be eliminated.

Within several short weeks, the world shuts down as another pandemic takes hold.

Your manager decides to get ahead by taking credit for your team’s success and blaming you for everything else.

You answer your phone and hear, “I’ve been in an accident.”

You probably feel it already. Your pulse increases, your muscles tighten, you start to feel nauseous, and maybe tears start forming. During times of stress, uncertainty, or trauma, our bodies seem to work against us, but we can take back control.

We can retrain our evolutionary responses to danger to not only survive, but to thrive. Emotional Fitness is your mental and physical toolbox to overcome challenges and lead where others may fail. By understanding common patterns of stress, we can develop strategies to reduce anxiety and face these challenges from a more grounded perspective. You’ll learn how to improve your resiliency using situational awareness, rehearsal, support networks, and social scripts. Bad things will continue to happen, but by preparing and training ourselves ahead of time, we will emerge as leaders during troubling times.


Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the psychology and physiology of how we react to stress, threats, and trauma.
  • Learn how to recognize and react to threats and escalate to the best color code.
  • Develop everyday techniques for managing stress and uncertainty.
