Veteran, Annie Brock, Created the Leader Transition Institute to Help Veterans
The Scuttlebutt | Season 8 Episode 9
The Leader Transition Institute prepares and walks beside people who are making pivots in their lives, with a special emphasis on service members, veterans, and their spouses who are transitioning from active military service to the civilian sector.
LTI was launched in 2018 after the first session of what has become its flagship program, Changing Focus: Moving From We to Me. The program, designed for service members, veterans, and their spouses who are within 24 months of transitioning from active duty to the civilian sector, fills the gaps left by the DoD-mandated transition programs.
Focusing on a holistic approach to establishing goals and renewing passions, Changing Focus helps service members take the next step in their careers. Since 2018, Leader Transition Institute has crisscrossed the United States bringing the program to North Carolina, Florida, the District of Columbia and California. In 2020, the team moved into the virtual arena because of COVID-19. More than 300 Service members, veterans, and their spouses in over 33 states, in six countries, across three continents have now participated in 34 cohorts of the program.
Joining Shaun to talk about their individual service, the inception of LTI, and the programs on offer are President and CEO Annie Brock and Director Jose Velazquez.
