It’s Not Easy Being An NCO...

Are you exhausted from constantly facing roadblocks, blocking your path to greatness?

Your work-life balance feels out of whack.

Maybe your NCO peers do not share the same enthusiastic approach as you.

Perhaps you feel unsupported in your journey, with nowhere to turn.

Maybe it’s difficult to confide in your peers for fear of judgment? How can you share your innermost thoughts, admit when you’re struggling or ask for help when you’re supposed to be firm and tough, able to deal with your feelings.

You want to excel. You’re desperate to succeed in your career. You want to give your kids the life you never had. You want to make your family proud by moving through the ranks and making something of yourself.

But there's something in your way...

Is it your peers, are they holding you back? The pack mentality has got hold of them, and you’re the odd one out. They think you’re too keen. Too big for your boots.

In other words, you’re scared to stick your head up outside of the bunker.

Is your mindset stopping you? You just don’t believe in yourself, even though you know you should. The imposter syndrome has engulfed you.

You feel isolated - you have no one to turn to. You need advice on how to best approach your situation - but you don’t know how to do this?

The gaps in your education are discouraging you. As a result, you’re finding yourself losing motivation and momentum along the way.

Growth and development training - what even is that? You’ve never even heard of it, let alone be offered any.

The frustration is eating away at you. You know you could be achieving more if you had the right mindset and the right people around you.

What you’re lacking is optimization.

  • What you’re lacking is optimization
  • Optimization of your time, optimization of your training, optimization of your leadership
  • Optimization of those around you

Craving The Freedom To Be You?

But how can you optimize your network when you can’t seek support from those around you?

You can’t ask for feedback, guidance, or advice through fear of judgment. You can’t talk through a difficult situation for the worry of what your peers might say about you.

The pack mentality that you’ve found yourself in makes it hard to be vulnerable.

You need to connect to a culturally and professionally diverse range of Army NCOs who support and inspire one another.

You need to tap into an encouraging group of like-minded people. Only then will you optimize and be able to make the progress you desire.

A group of people who build you up, stimulate you, inspire you, invigorate you.

Imagine a place where you could alleviate your fears, have your questions answered, and discuss your innermost thoughts, completely free of judgment - no questioning or mocking.

Just the freedom to be you.

You're surrounded by people who want to achieve, just like you do! An ambitious network of fellow NCOs.

A recent study by Atlassian shows that teams with an open workstyle are 80% more likely to report ‘high emotional well-being.’

An open workstyle = “the freedom to share information and ideas, opportunities to weigh in on decisions and strong interpersonal connections within the group.”

They found that “being able to share personal information and feeling respected by teammates are the biggest drivers of emotional health.”

Atlassian also found that groups with an open work style were 60% more likely to achieve more and faster than those who worked alone.

This proves that being in a group where you feel supported, can make great connections, and input into important decisions can significantly benefit your emotional well-being and productivity.

But truthfully, I know how isolating it can feel to be different from the pack. The anomaly. I was the NCO who struggled to find my path to success. As a young SGT, I was gung-ho and driven to be successful, and just like you, I felt alone.

I soon realized that it didn’t need to be like that.

I learned that if I was going to get ahead in my career, I had to surround myself with like-minded NCOs. Those who wanted to excel. Push themselves. Achieve.

Once I realized I was not alone and could have honest conversations with NCOs I trusted, I began to work through each of my demons.

I’d found people I could lean on, people who could help me through anything.

I began to build a network of confidants - NCOs I knew had my back and wouldn't judge me based on my fears of failure.

Listen, I'm living proof that tapping into a network of supportive, encouraging, and inspiring peer NCOs can help you develop a life-changing growth mindset.

I want to help other NCOs feel the power of a network like I did.

I want you to realize you are not alone. I don’t want you to go through what I did.

Because I’ve been there, it’s now my mission to provide struggling NCOs with a safe space to grow, develop and learn. To create a platform solely focused on helping NCOs excel in their career. To provide a place for NCOs to seek guidance without fear of judgment.

I'm Steven Foust...

I served 13-years on active duty in the United States Army. After leaving Active Duty, I joined the Army Reserve and completed an additional 8 years in multiple leadership roles before retiring with more than 20-years of total service.

After the Army, I became a sought after leadership expert and advanced to Senior Executive positions in several Fortune 100 companies. I currently help leaders at all levels get promoted faster and grow their careers.

As a former NCO that climbed the ranks like you (PVT to SFC in my case) then transitioned to become a Chief Warrant Officer (CW3), I've seen first hand the struggles of finding the support and resources I needed and when I most needed them, so I could create the Army career and life I wanted most.

One HUGE problem I faced was my struggle to find other NCO's who shared similar challenges, had similar goals, also ambitious about their career, and were passionate about balancing career and family.

Once I discovered other NCO's like me, we created a tightly knitted group that supported each other through thick and thin. The accountability, support, and encouragement we shared provided each of us with additional momentum and confidence to overcome challenges. We could not have accomplished this on our own.

I have walked in your shoes and faced the very same challenges. I will help you pour fuel on your Army career, life balance, and beyond.

The True Cost Of Career Progression

“What would this growth and development training cost outside of the membership?”

You’d pay upwards of $200 an hour to work with a leadership or mindset coach.

Or maybe you decide to work with an Army career coach, which would easily cost over $200 per hour.

Growth and development training can cost over $2,500 for an 8-week program.

Purchasing books, resources, and tools could cost you hundreds of dollars.

Not forgetting the countless hours you could spend trawling the internet for answers to your questions, advice on being a better leader, or optimization tips. When your time is so limited, it’s precious to you.

If you added all of these costs together, your total could exceed $3,000 per month. Not counting your valuable time...
