Editorial Reviews

Review

"…a pick for any military veteran unsure about how to apply military training and experience to the business world. It teaches all veterans and nonmilitary professionals how to use these skills effectively to solve business problems and covers everything from the differences between a military and business environment to planning solutions, meeting goals, and improving people relationships. Very highly recommended for business and military libraries alike."  -- Midwest Book Review

Review

"Helping military leaders transition successfully to become corporate leaders will be good for the corporations and the country. These combat veterans bring unique skills and experiences to the private sector, but they need a framework to make this transition. This book provides that."  -- Lawrence J. Korb, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress

Young veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are not getting jobs and their unemployment rate is as high as twice the national average. In California, veteran unemployment is 25%. Chad Storlie wants to do something about that.

His book, Combat Leader to Corporate Leader is a translation guide for veterans entering the civilian workforce. The author takes the terms veterans are accustomed to, such as the intelligence report, wargaming, assessing the battlefield, and tells them how to convert these to the civilian world. It's a must read for veterans leaving the service and should be included in the bibliography of any service transition program.

I think that one of the strengths of the book is that Mr. Storlie identifies integrity and honesty as among the most valuable credentials a veteran can bring to a civilian job. He points out several of the higher profile corporate fraud cases. I agree with that and I think it's a point most veterans take for granted.

My brother is an investigator on corporate fraud and issues an annual report on embezzlement cases. I can tell you there are many more cases than hit the mainstream news.

I'm not sure why returning vets aren't getting hired. It may be stigma over PTSD or an aversion to hiring killers. I'd like to see more research about this.

In many ways, Combat Leader to Corporate Leader grapples with the transition from a command and control leadership structure to a structure where leadership is more about creating an environment where workers contribute their cognitive best. In this sense, many of Mr. Storlie's lessons are appropriate for every, whether or not they come from a military background.

As a Military Talent recruiter, developer, and a previous candidate myself, I feel that Chad did an amazing job capturing what I have undergone, am undergoing, and have been a part of with hundreds of veteran hires. I look forward to seeing Chad at SHRM [...] and having him on my panel on the 26th. I'm also proud to say that his book will be part of Amazon's Military Leadership Conference, for our numerous military hires.

Cheers,
Phil Dana[...]
