Starting her journey in the military, COL Candice Frost was forced to challenge herself and the perception of others to accept women in their ranks. Starting in the 82d Airborne Division and continuing throughout her career, she worked to challenge the status quo and work to pave the path for other women and men to succeed. Through leadership and mentorship the diversity of teams she helped to coach brought about real change in organizations.
Today, she shares the secrets of how to break through those barriers and achieve lasting change both in her consulting and as the Director with the Department of the Army Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-2.
ClearanceJobs sat down with COL Frost to hear about how her team is operating under the COVID-19 pandemic, what motivated her to join the US Army in the first place, and what makes a true leader, pandemic or not.
COL Frost is responsible for providing current and estimative intelligence to the Secretariat and the Army Staff and projects the Future Strategic Environment to the Secretary of the Army, Chief of Staff of the Army, Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, Army G-2, and Army Acquisition Executive.
She leads a very large team at the Pentagon and it’s apparent that COL Frost is a true leader.
“Leadership takes more than just one person, it comes from the team that supports the effort. Through teamwork activities, based on design thinking, I’ll work to create a sharing environment for your team to break through barriers and achieve more….together.”
As a decorated combat veteran, college instructor, and seasoned speaker, she engages and inspires attendees at events, workshops, and through one-on-one coaching.
