AICPA & CIMA CFO Conference 2021

CFO2116 - Mental Toughness For Tough Times

May 7, 2021 12:00pm ‐ May 7, 2021 1:15pm

Standard: $49.00


Terms like mental toughness and a strong mind conjure up images of tough guys who plow their way through obstacles and adversity. That approach might work in football, but not in business or life. Many of us have experienced trauma in different ways in recent months. More than ever, we need positive thinking, resilience, and willpower to find ways to move through adversity and roadblocks.

As a former FBI agent, LaRae believes that while theories are nice, evidence is better. This session will combine her real-life experience with neuroscience and social psychology to help you find new ways to meet the challenges in front of you.

Learning Objectives:
  • Positive Thinking: Recognize how you can prevail in your circumstances rather than expect your circumstances to change
  • Resilience: Determine why your obstacles won’t define you; instead, you can be defined by how you overcame them
  • Willpower: Identify how to pursue the things that fill you with purpose and meaning. Once you do, you will put in the work to get better at it every day


  • LaRae K. Quy, Founder and Director, The Mental Toughness Center
