A note from to service leavers from Rob Hart, founder, managing director and trainer with Manage and Thrive Training:
I added this page to help you to navigate to the website... hopefully having found the page you can now look at the rest of the site. I thought it is important to provide a specific page for military leavers, based on my own experience and background. Without going into too much detail (it was a while ago!)... I served in the Army until 2005. After various types of employment (and lack of it), I decided to share the vast learning and experience provided by the Army, which has been tempered in other walks of life, to managers.
The general ethos is:
(a) to help businesses that need some focussed in-house management training,
(b) to help business start-ups that may have limited time and budget,
(c) and importantly to help those experts (like lawyers, lecturers, doctors, architects, engineers, and the like) who have been excelling in their technical roles, but now find themselves struggling in a 'management' role.
I remain surprised at how little management training and support people are given in civvy street. It puts into context how even a short spell in the services can really provide a foundation for future managerial roles. And that includes start-up businesses, working as freelance consultants, or moving into some sort of role in a wider organisation.
That said, the rules are different in civvy street. And not without good reason. It is a different place, which needs some care. So (to use just one cheesy cliché) adapt, improvise and overcome.
