Clarence Easterday on How a Military Mindset Impacts Human Connection
November 11, 2021
How does working in a nuclear unit in the military have profound impacts on human connection? Clarence Easterday (Former US Army Field Artillery Officer) is a prominent leader in the risk management and trucking sector and his unit was one of many tasked with protecting America. As someone who has had experience working on military missions, he draws parallels between how his experience impacts his ability to make real connections with people outside company walls.
After putting his own life on the line, we learn that it's not surprising that individuals who want to protect our country would pursue a career in insurance and risk management to protect and serve those that are injured. Clarence shares how military experience impacts leadership mentality, empathy for injured parties, and the ability to “portray humanness” in the settlement and litigation process.
