Do you want to manage your stress better? I know I do! In this episode, I spoke with Colonel Deb Lewis. Deb taught me that we can make stress work for us and not against us. Stress doesn’t have to be the enemy. Along with this, I learned more about Deb’s experience at West Point, her position as a colonel in the Army and more. What I loved most about this conversation is how Deb shared her tips with us so we can make stress our superpower and learn how to be more mentally tough in professional and personal situations.
Here’s a bit more about Deb:
Colonel Deb Lewis is a West Point graduate from its first class with women. A retired Army Colonel and Harvard MBA, Deb commanded three US Army Corps of Engineer Districts, including a $2.1 billion reconstruction program in combat. She survived the 9/11 Pentagon attack while serving on the Joint Staff anti-terrorism team. Colonel Deb’s experiences leading while under fire inspired her “Mentally Tough Women” (MTW) program to help women handle more stress – not de-stress- and put it to work for them. MTW arms women with the proven strategies, insights and tools they need in good times and times of crisis.
As Deb says, “The better you get at handling stress, the easier it becomes to do insanely hard things and really love doing them.”
