One of the unique and vital things that we do at The Honor Foundation is to help U.S. Special Operations Forces service members tell their stories. One of the many tools that we use to provide the Fellows of our program the language and self-awareness necessary is the Clifton Strengths assessment.
THF CEO Matt Stevens recently spoke with Darren Virassammy and Brandon Miller, Co-founders of 34 Strong, Inc., on #TheStrengthsWhisperer podcast about how knowing your strengths is a game changer. We have seen the impact on both our organization and the people we serve, so listen in to hear exactly what that looks like.

THF CEO Matt Stevens joins Got Your Six host, Tony Nash, for an informative discussion regarding transition.
Listeners will learn about how private organizations are helping veterans with their career transition journey and hear about some of the principles and actionable methods they teach in their programs, including how to overcome your fears as an introvert to grow your network, which you can implement on your own so you can create more opportunities for you.
As a result, you’ll be able to acknowledge that accepting the connective tissue of where you came from to where you’re going is all part of knowing who you are. You will also gain new insights and better confidence in how to face one of the biggest challenges you’ll face after your military service: finding the right career path and pursuing a fulfilled and satisfying life.

“Transition is like packing a parachute. No matter how you pack it, it’s probably going to open, and you’re going to land, and you’re going to survive. But if you pack it carefully and nicely, you’ll have a nice soft opening and a good landing. So treat your transition like that. Treat it like a job – prepare for it with the same mindset that got you into the community…”

“Transition is a layered approach and it certainly depends on all the factors like your job, your deployments — things like that. Whatever you do, you have to make sure you have an offramp and not a cliff. You don’t want to come to the cliff and fall off. You want to walk down the ramp and have a smooth landing…” — Matt Stevens
