Win the 1st Battle for your Next Career

This Course is for senior military leaders who are in transition or recently retired, who are coachable, ready to roll-up their sleeves to set-up themselves for success.

This course provides you with a strategic approach for your transition, so you will:

  • Find a next career that you love by using this practical framework
  • Determine the right roles for you in the right organizations with the right values in the right industry / sector / cause by developing your compelling purpose, outlining your values, and determining the roles that will put you in a state of flow
  • Get the right attention by the right organizations for the right reasons by positioning yourself as an expert who offers significant value
  • Avoid wasting your time, talent, and energy in dead-end jobs or toxic cultures
  • Stop being trapped in the resume-writing – interview-churning – "we're-moving-in-a-different-direction" hamster wheel.
  • Attract the right employers for the right reasons by developing an authentic value proposition that helps them see you as a high-payoff investment,
  • Get noticed by the right people for the right jobs by building a relevant network and conducting highly effective prospecting,
  • Avoid common interview traps and setting important work boundaries by dealing with these objections most senior military leaders face
  • Maximize your chances of success for the right roles with the right companies by learning to use this one important tool.

Why you need this:

  • Most veteran hiring programs are for young troopers and junior officers, not for you
  • Many companies don’t know what to do with us … and we tend not to help them very much
  • Think about this: Companies take a much higher risk in hiring you – bigger salary, bigger role = bigger risk of expensive fall out if you are not a good fit.
  • Many of our predecessors have not exactly covered themselves in glory – bad senior hires have a much larger impact than bad junior hires.
  • You need ways to help them see you as a low-risk, high-payoff hire who can add clear and compelling value to the organization.

Why Listen to Chris?

  • I've walked a mile in your boots and made every mistake that I'll help you avoid -- let my painful journey be your short-cut to success and your defense against expensive mistakes.
  • I’ve been in their shoes – I am also very selecting about bringing people into my business. My name, reputation, and livelihood are attached to it … I have rejected highly qualified people … people just like you.
  • I know the real-world objections you are likely to face
  • I know the time-tested process for getting the right attention from the right people and how you can apply it as you search for a second career.
  • I’ve learned that you have to know yourself beyond the military in order to find a second career you love.
