How Veterans & Service Members Can Achieve Post-Military Career Success with Matt Kuchera...
The Driven Entrepreneur with Matt Brauning
Ep #242 - My guest this week is Matt Kuchera, a 12.5 year Air Force Veteran who served as a Master Military Training Instructor to mold more than 82,000 United States men and women to take on world-changing roles. Matt made the decision to walk away from the service, so that his young family could create a more stable foundation and live near his parents. Since leaving, he has earned a bachelor's degree and master's degree from Purdue University and has begun a doctorate program to become a Doctor of Technology. After graduating, Matt landed his dream job as a Vice President for the largest bank in the US and he now coaches veterans and service members on how to position themselves for successful post-military success. Matt is the host of the podcast, Vet Pivot, where he highlights topics in veteran transition by interviewing other veterans and industry leaders that have made successful pivots themselves. His three-step process to military transition will instill the discipline and insight necessary for anybody to survive the upheaval of a career change step. His work is powerful and he's an amazing human-being. Enjoy my interview with Matt Kuchera.

We often receive feedback and don't really LISTEN to what it is telling us or we take it personally instead of using it to grow as a leader. Today, Matt Kuchera and I discuss the gift of feedback. It is a gift, in that people do not owe it to you. It takes time and energy for someone to give it to you and with that being said, you should at least listen to what the person has to say.Sure, there are people out there who give terrible feedback, but as leaders, we must be direct and show some tact and candor when delivering it. It's not personal, it's just business! (See High Hopes Initiative Episode 15)Matt also discusses that a leaders, we do not have to be the smartest in the room. We must have the big picture mindset and be able to orchestrate all the people and other moving pieces effectively to obtain results.
