Operation Transition is a 12-month group coaching program for recently hired (<1 yr) veterans who are in their first or second civilian employment within 3 years post transition.

The coaching program is intended to keep those new hires engaged and focused on adapting and acclimating in that critical first 12-18 months in a civilian job.  There is also a focus on re-purposing their military-developed leadership skills to benefit the civilian organization.

The sessions addresses the challenges of transition from military to corporate, while providing actionable steps to determine how to navigate the corporate environment, find new support systems and build new networks while leveraging what the military taught them about acclimating, adapting and improvising when in new environments.
