AIIR will leverage the powerful insight of the Coaching Mindset Index® to increase coaching skills for community leaders in the organization’s Eagle Leadership Development Program.

AIIR Consulting is proud to announce a new leadership development initiative in partnership with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), a national organization dedicated to enriching the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.

AIIR has partnered with Team RWB to help Fellows in the organization’s Eagle Leadership Development Program, a 36-month curriculum designed to educate and elevate its community leaders, leverage coaching skills to build community and enhance veterans’ lives.

Fellows in the program will have the opportunity to take the Coaching Mindset Index®, a revolutionary assessment designed to help leaders understand and leverage their individual coaching styles. Each fellow will then receive a personal results debrief from a member of AIIR’s Global Coaching Network.

AIIR senior coach Christopher Schmitt, a retired U.S. Army Special Forces Officer (Green Beret) and current Eagle Leadership Fellow, said that Team Red, White & Blue was key to his successful transition when he retired from the military after 30 years of service.

“Everybody seeks community; everybody needs support. When I retired from the military in 2016, this organization connected me to a community of veterans and non-veterans,” Schmitt said. “Using the Coaching Mindset Index®, we hope to empower outgoing Fellows to act as leader-coaches to the new cohort of program participants — to give them the tools and support they need to engage and strengthen their own communities and make a difference in the lives of America’s veterans.”

“We believe in the power of great leaders to effect positive change in the world, and coaching skills are an essential component of great leadership,” said AIIR founder and CEO Jonathan Kirschner, Psy.D. “The men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces make tremendous sacrifices. We are humbled to have the opportunity to help empower the Eagle Leaders at Team Red, White & Blue with coaching skills that will help them make a positive impact in the veteran community.”
