“I’m grateful that I came across Lida’s work! Lida focuses on the unique experience of transitioning military members and provides a practical, common-sense approach which, if employed by the transitioning military member, will greatly assist them in their new journey. Lida has a knack for breaking down that all-too-ambiguous issue of who you are, how you’re perceived and how to get the attention of the people you want attention from. Now that you’re taking the rank off, the dynamic of how you are presented and perceived changes; Lida walks you through how to manage that strategically and effectively.” Paul Bogacz, Captain, US Air Force (Ret), Curriculum Developer, United States Personnel Professional Development School
