Companies hire JMO (Junior Military Officer) talent for a number of types of roles. Some are placed with the leading edge company in a “sexy” leadership development position. However, many JMOs relish the challenge of a non-ideal situation with potential. You might even call these candidates “turnaround specialists”.

JMOs make great turnaround specialists. They have been trained to accomplish a mission and that is where they put all their focus. They have been trained in team dynamics and understand how motivation works on a personal level. They typically have had a similar experience in the military – many inherited a command that was lacking and turned it around. And they come from outside the industry offering unique perspectives as well as an inclination to question the status quo.

Finding a turnaround specialist that is a fit for your organization and unique situation can be challenging, however finding the right JMO might just be THE guy or gal for your company.
