After ten years as a U.S Marine (my last tour as an operations analyst with an M.S. in Ops Research) I got out of the Marine Corps in 2000 and had to decide what was next. As a life long student, I decided to get a PhD in industrial and organizational psychology since that seemed to be the biggest reason why various initiatives weren't working. The best analysis and strategies didn't seem to matter as much as the supposed "soft" skills. Soft is not easy though... After stints as a consultant, and workkng for the Army and the Department of Energy, I ended up as the manager for training and development for the Office of Nuclear Energy. I was qualified to administer the Myers Brigg Type Indicator in 2000 and over the years, I've continued to fall back onto it as my goto foundation for people to understand basic differneces in other people (and themselves). Things can get complicated, but it's always best to start (and sometimes finish...) at the beginning.
