Meet Mickey Thaxton

The military is a crucible — stressful, challenging and at times, unforgiving.

Having mastered the skills to succeed in this most demanding of professions, exceling in the corporate world should follow naturally.

But the skills you learned and refined in the military aren’t delivering the kind of results you thought they would or that your new organization requires.  Something needs to change.

I know what that’s like. After 22 years in the Navy, I was certain I had the ability to quickly integrate into my new environment and establish myself as an influential leader. I thought I could rely on the skills that had brought me success in the past.

Mickey Thaxton, Leadership Coach & Strategist

The learning curve was steep and I enjoyed early success but then plateaued. I couldn’t see a path forward.

I decided to take responsibility for my own development and change the one thing I could control — myself. I learned the value of critical self-assessment and how to recognize my blind spots. I put theory to practice, became a more effective leader and began to mentor others.

Senior officers who have made the transition to corporate leadership roles need a methodology to achieve the influence and impact they desire. I founded Military LeaderShift to help leaders like you get to the next level and create the future they want for themselves, their teams, and their organizations. Let’s get started!
