At the Summit hosted by Sierra College on Saturday, Gracefully Global Group will formally unveil the brand new Authentic Personal Branding for Military Veterans offering now available here.
This is a unique three-module, on-demand class to help transitioning service members and veterans create powerful personal brands that help to differentiate each one as the MUST-HAVE candidate. The new course is modeled after the highly-interactive workshop the company founder has facilitated for many student veterans at colleges and universities coast-to-coast for five years.
Mitch Craddock served as President of the Texas A&M Veterans Association and attended her 2017 workshop in College Station. He said, "The Authentic Personal Branding seminar led by Ms. Tiscareño was absolutely instrumental to helping our veterans understand their real value! Far too often do service men and women leave the military not fully understating their true impact and how their individual contributions made a difference. They mask the very characteristics that enabled them to go above and beyond for their country behind their own humility and selflessness, and as a result, miss out on many opportunities. Graciela's seminar was unique in that it addressed this problem directly and instituted a personalized solution for each individual in attendance. She utilized her own knowledge and military experience to personally connect with every veteran in the room and approached each situation as if it were her own. Using expert communication skills, Graciela assisted each individual with breaking down their own history, putting it in perspective, and aligning it toward their future goals. Graciela helped a room of veterans self-actualize their own worth, while also equipping them with the communication skills they need to demonstrate that worth and accomplish their goals. Graciela's Seminar was a valuable experience, one that every transitioning veteran should have."

Ms. Tiscareño left active duty aviation service after completing her master degree in international management and global marketing.

Unlike other content for this community that tends to focus too much on resume creation and jargon translation, THIS course is about the art of creating compelling language through storytelling to attract the desired audiences' attention so that they're begging to know more about the veteran. Also unlike other courses, this online class focuses on each student veteran's unique experiences to create a distinct brand. Plus, unlike other courses on this topic, this one was created by a veteran who brings both first-hand knowledge of the often-painful military-to-
Ms. Tiscareño envisions this content being eventually adopted into the existing Department of Labor Transition Assistance Program that service members participate in before leaving active duty service. Many veterans in Ms. Tiscareño's workshops have stated that this critical content is missing from TAP and would like to see curriculum focus more on these types of skills and less on how to look up DOL labor statistics. The founder is actively seeking TAP program developers, consultants and partners to explore synergies and get this content into TAP to benefit service members before they exit.
For her servant heart and dedication to social entrepreneurship, Ms. Tiscareño has been recognized on the floor of the House of Representatives by her Congressman, Eric Swalwell, and by the Obama White House as a White House Champion of Change Woman Veteran Leader.
