On The Other Side: Leadership After Transition

Leaders from all branches of Service exit the military for many different reasons. This podcast is designed to bring leaders from all Services; Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard that have already made the transition to give some insight to transitioning Service Members and Service Members who have already made the transition who are struggling. Through sharing experiences, I am hopeful that my guests can give some knowledge and hope to our transitioning Veterans. I also hope to reach civilian business owners to give them some understanding of what they are getting by hiring a Veteran, from a leadership perspective.
