To build the bridge between our Fellows and exemplary opportunities we have assembled several “Tribes” of Support. We call them Tribes for a reason. Tribes are anchored to an idea, not a single individual or organization. The collective is what creates real and lasting value. Our Tribes establish strong, deep bonds and work together for the betterment of our entire ecosystem. This is the expectation we set for those who join our Tribes.
The Coaches our Fellows have access to while progressing through THF are a tremendous asset. They come to THF with proven professional track records for guiding others and offer crucial 1-on-1 advisement. They are critical in getting our Fellows from indoctrination to graduation during the three month program of 120 hours of curriculum; and achieving the goal of formulating a clear and concise transition plan. The coaches featured below are members of the Advisory Board who, with over 250 volunteer coaches, comprise the THF Coaches Tribe.
Our Faculty plays a large part in the ecosystem of collaboration among our Tribes in order to achieve a certain experience for our Fellows. This unique experience serves as the foundation for our entire Institute, as THF is a direct result of a faculty composed of varied specialties who wish to create learning through class activities, lectures, discussions, workshops, real world applications and best business practices. Each faculty member provides our Fellows with the necessary tools to construct higher levels of self awareness, direction, and an enriched worldview centered around a new career path forward. We wish to engage with the best individuals who are looking to truly make a difference in the lives of transitioning members of the SOF community.
One of the earliest insights that shaped the development of THF was the realization that as
exceptional performers, members of the SOF community rarely fail at a job. Where they fail is in
cultures where extraordinary is not the norm.
When we seek out employers to add to our network, we don’t worry about who has the most jobs. We
start by finding extraordinary individuals, people whose personal values and missions align with our
own. Only then do we ask, “What company do you work for?”
Through this approach we have created a committed network of personal connections that grant us
access to the best employers for our Fellows in a wide array of industries. The strength of our
network is a product of our approach.
