Adapt + Overcome S1 Episode 3
“Hello, darkness, my old friend…” is the first thing Chris Schmitt hears in his head of when faced with overwhelming challenges.
Chris is no stranger to ambiguity, as a US Army Green Beret who led teams in relentless environments in Afghanistan, the Sahara/Niger, Western Europe, and the Balkans. He advised the President of Mali in counter-terrorism infrastructure and directed friendly forces in uncertain combat environments.
Today Chris embraces the sound of silence in the great outdoors: he founded Azimuth Consulting Group to facilitate leadership workshops and non-traditional, adventure-based, leadership development.
