Courier Journal: Military veterans are leaders that companies need

May 7, 2018

Louisville (Ky.) Courier Journal Opinion contributor Gene Potes writes, “The U.S. military strives to instill an exceptional work ethic, a unique mastery of teamwork and an indomitable sense of leadership into the men and women who serve — all skills that successful companies prize when hiring and promoting employees.”

In “Military veterans are leaders that companies need,” Potes makes the case, “Too often, veterans are told that their military experience was not “real experience” in comparison to corporate experience. However, there are few opportunities better for learning leadership and conflict resolution than through military service.”
