A classmate of Joe’s from TBS (The Basic School), Christian served eight years on active duty before transitioning to the civilian sector. He shares three reasons why he believes veterans struggle with transition and adapting to the corporate world. Christian details his journey into entrepreneurship, running his own company even after joining a corporation as an officer and later ,a C-level executive. Leveraging his combined experience in entrepreneurship, the military, and the corporate world, Christian now provides strategic advising and coaching for Fortune 500 CEOs. Drawing on this diverse background, he offers insights into successful business leadership, emphasizing the importance of managing with purpose and finding the right team for your mission. He also contrasts the military’s approach to leadership with that of the corporate world, highlighting their key differences. Christian is the founder of Project RELO, a non-profit that brings corporate leaders and executive teams to military bases for an immersive look at military training and operations. This program helps employers recognize the vast potential veterans can bring to their businesses.

This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp. I’ve been to therapy a few times over the years when dealing with tragedies in my life and the Marine Corps and the thing therapy helped me realize immediately is that the things that were bothering me were perfectly normal for them to bother me.  Once I realized that, it made everything much easier to deal with. Now we all know that being in the military is pretty much a traumatic experience in and of itself, but I want to make sure you understand this point, therapy isn’t just for those who’ve experienced major trauma. Therapy is helpful for learning positive coping skills and how to set boundaries; it empowers you to be the best version of yourself.
