Obviously, this show is dedicated to MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN and studying key factors in our quest. This analysis starts as each of us ponders the person in the mirror. What are our skills, passions and desires? Do we intend to become a leader or are we satisfied with following. Life is not stagnant, so we must each decide whether we are going to pursue our goals or just let the wind carry us wherever it blows.
Among our population are a small percentage of people who choose to serve the public in very unique ways. They volunteer for scary propositions. Every day they put their uniforms on, whether they are wearing law enforcement gear, firefighting protective equipment or military combat fatigues, they consciously put their lives between danger and us. These are HEROES. They are men and women who choose to stand and confront scenarios that we only see in Hollywood productions.
What happens when one of our heroes who is the epitome of servant leadership, especially a military veteran, decides to transition to the civilian world?
What paradigm do they use to see their new work environment, and more importantly, how does the business community view our transitioning heroes? While we could catalog many differences between their line of work and a small business environment, let's look at the value of their experience through the Leadership paradigm. In today's episode, that is precisely where we'll go in order to explore the massive talent pool available to the private sector.... if we are looking through an accurate paradigm!
