Show Summary:

In this conversation with Dr. Xavier Bruce, we hear his story firsthand and what led him to become the change he wanted to see in the world. In this episode, Xavier (or Dr. X) shares his experience retiring from the military and his struggle to identify the mental health support he desired and needed. Ultimately this led to becoming a coach himself. He shares some of this journey that included encountering racism in the military, pursuing his doctorate while an active-duty officer, and building a business that supports underrepresented men and women in the military — and building it in the midst of COVID.

Guest Bio:

Dr. Xavier Bruce, CEO/Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Air Force (Ret.), was an active-duty officer in the U.S. Air Force stationed in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Qatar. During his time in the Air Force, he dealt with several stressful situations at once, including a rocky marriage, raising a son with autism, struggling through the doctoral dissertation process, microaggressions in the military, and experiencing rocket attacks while deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan. With no one to guide him, he turned to self-learning and created a self-development framework he calls Strategic Energetic Transition™ (SET), which serves as the basis of his unique approach to coaching and speaking. Through his businesses Uplift Energy Coaching and Uplift In-Powerment, he supports underrepresented men and women veterans experiencing stress and anxiety associated with life transitions. He also commands the Western Maryland Chapter of the National Association for Black Veterans.
