In this episode Patrick welcomes Dr. Andrew Wittman. Andrew is the founder of the Mental Toughness Training Center, a leadership consultancy specializing in peak performance, team dynamics, resolving conflict in the workplace and is the author of the book, “Ground Zero Leadership: CEO of You” (2016). He teaches strategies on how to take control of your thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and actions, especially under pressure while sharing his experiences in combat and high-threat environments across the globe.
A Marine Corps infantry combat veteran and former federal agent, he holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Theology, is a guest lecturer at Clemson University, and co-hosts the radio call-in show, “Get Warrior Tough.” As a leadership and peak-performance expert working across five continents, Andrew has successfully added tens of millions in profit to his clients’ bottom line, through his trade-mark cellular problem-solving methods before becoming a motivational keynote speaker.
Andrew is the son of missionaries to Australia, China, and the West Indies, and was brought up in the town of Wagga Wagga, New South Wales. Upon graduating high school, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps infantry and lead troops in combat operations in the Republic of Panama and Desert Storm, anti-terrorism operations in Honduras and two deployments to the Far East. As a security contractor for the State Department, Andrew has deployed to Jordan, Kosovo and completed four tours in Afghanistan.
Upon exiting military service, Andrew entered the field of law enforcement, becoming a sheriff’s deputy in his home state of South Carolina. He is the recipient of the J.P. Strom Award, which is the highest and most prestigious award given to a graduate of the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy, in recognition of being the honor graduate of his class. An accomplishment he repeated at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, GA while transitioning from a local to a federal commission.
Dr. Wittman was the Special Agent in Charge of Nancy Pelosi's security detail, was Joe Lieberman's lead advance agent. He has personally protected Hillary Clinton, Tom Delay, Trent Lott, King Abdullah of Jordan, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Sir Elton John, as well as Fortune 20 CEOs.
