RINGKNOCKER Virtual Meetup #6 with Chris Akins
Chris Akins (USNA ‘95) is a Psychology Fellow with the VA Eastern Colorado Healthcare System, based in Golden, CO.
Chris is a Psychology Fellow with the VA Eastern Colorado Healthcare System, based in Golden, CO. After leaving the Navy, Chris worked in the energy, aerospace, and financial sectors for Fortune 500 industry leaders as well as small/medium-sized companies seeking to establish a beachhead.
Eventually Chris left his successful business career to pursue a passion of helping his fellow warriors. He earned a PhD in psychology, and is now realizing his goals at the VA, where he works in Primary Care with the medical staff to help veterans overcome a variety of psychiatric and substance use challenges. Chris also leverages his psychology and business experiences to help organizations adapt and grow in challenging environments.
The topic this week: psychological aspects of the COVID crisis. Not how to ENDURE it, shipmates, oh no. Chris will give us some pointers on how to EXPLOIT the crisis, and how to THRIVE through it, given what we know about our own psychology and that of our customers and business partners.
Don’t miss this one!
