His book, “From CO to CEO: A Practical Guide for Transitioning from Military to Industry Leadership” answers all these questions.

William Toti speaks from a unique perspective as one of very few Americans who served both as a military CO (the nuclear submarine USS Indianapolis) and a corporate CEO (Sparton Corporation).  With 26 years of active duty service followed by 15 years running multi-billion-dollar companies, he offers an engaging account what it takes to succeed after transitioning from military command to industry leadership.

A Practical Guide to Transitioning from Military to Industry Leadership

Each year, over 200,000 service members transition life and career paths after separation from the military. You’ve served your country dutifully, and as a member of the US armed forces you’ve also developed a discipline, drive, and skillset admired the world over. Your success in the civilian job market after your military career ends is all but ensured, right?

Smooth sailing into civilian life and career is sadly not the transition that many service members encounter. In fact, statistics and real-life reports from former predecessors show struggle in the area of career change. More than half of those surveyed about the process felt as if they had little to no help with the transition.

That’s why William J. Toti, retired naval officer and former CEO of Sparton Corporation, wrote From CO to CEO: A Practical Guide for Transitioning from Military to Industry Leadership. From CO to CEO aims to help you get the most out of your industry career with a step-by-step guide to navigating the search, interview, and negotiation process and helps you acclimate to your new environment and to accelerate your climb to the top.

A Practical Guide to Transitioning from Military to Industry Leadership

"When you first talked about transitioning, you were probably asked what you wanted to do for your second career. But a better question is, where do you want to be in ten or fifteen years?"
