HealthCode founder and CEO Steve Amos in this June 6 webinar discusses “From Active Duty to Civilian Life: Building a Culture of Success” with Tony Cucolo, a retired United States Army Major General and CEO of Austin-based Professional Contract Services, Inc., and Gwyn Armfield, retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General, Managing Director of RGA Consulting Group LLC, and co-author of “Lead to Serve and Serve to Lead: Leading Well in Turbulent Times.”
Tony and Gwyn provide phenomenal insights on finding purposeful work, slowing down to enjoy not being in charge, and how to navigate the new culture of “for-profit business.” They answer several insightful questions on training, mentorship, responsibility, and leadership. Whether you are a veteran making the transition or a leader hiring veterans, this conversation is full of practical tools to help you.
