Some advice for service leavers and veterans looking for work…

The course, grounded in the philosophy of Transperformance™, teaches people how to manage their own career changes, inspiring, I hope, an ability to be in control of one’s own destiny, and to enable participants to be able to move forward with renewed confidence in their own abilities. As has happened time and again with other people I have helped, this particular soldier had many questions and I encouraged him to ask them all, however silly he felt one or two were. Once again, I noticed how much subtext lay behind the questions, primarily based, as is so often the case, on what other service personnel had said to him.
