In this episode, Mike and Eric had the distinct honor of interviewing one of society's legends, Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg. Listen to his story as he honors the memory of his fallen brothers and sisters, and how their sacrifice motivated him to go into the business world.
On August 8, 2012, Florent was on his second deployment to Afghanistan when he made a split-second decision that prevented greater catastrophe and changed his life forever. His selfless display of courage in tackling a suicide bomber while protecting a command team on that fateful day earned him the Medal of Honor, and the distinction as the 10th living American to receive the nation’s top award for valor in combat since the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Today, as director of veteran’s outreach at Boeing and LinkedIn’s veteran’s program spokesperson, he is a powerful and prominent advocate for veterans’ issues. Florent’s new book, 8 Seconds of Courage, reveals lessons he learned on leadership, teamwork and overcoming adversity on the battlefield, and their direct application and connection to executives, managers and business situations.
