Dear Part-Time Army Company XO:

Thanks for visiting my website. You’re probably on this page because you want to succeed as an Army Company XO. If you’re like most folks, you’ve scoured the Internet trying to find resources to help you succeed, but come up short. You’ve read several manuals and books, only to discover that everything is written for your Active Duty counterpart, not you, the Citizen-Solider.

Maybe your Company Commander isn’t very helpful and hasn’t sat you down and counseled you or told you what they expect of you. Maybe you’re like a fish out of the water trying to figure out what your duties and responsibilities are. Maybe you just want to learn how to spend your time and how to work smart. If that’s the case, I’d like to say welcome home.

My name is Charles Holmes and I am the creator of I am a former Army Major and author of many books and products for USAR and ARNG officers and NCOs.

My first assignment in the Maryland Army National Guard was as a Company XO. I learned a lot in that job and had a successful and rewarding experience. I’ve taken my knowledge from that experience and created “The Part-Time Army Company XO Training Course” a product specifically for National Guard and Army Reserve officers.

Why I Created the Course

I created this course to help other Army Officers be successful in their duty position. I want young Lieutenants to have a simple game plan they can follow in their new job, and get a predictable result. I also realize that most officers in the ARNG and USAR don’t get very much career advice, mentoring or guidance. I hope to fill that gap.

Product Reviews

Still not convinced? Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what some of our happy customers are saying:

I bought Chuck’s Company XO Course right before I started my new assignment as XO in a medical unit. The course was so helpful. I learned how to spend my time, what I should focus on, and how to work with the command team and AGR Staff. Without this course, I’m not sure how well I would have done in the job. Now, I feel very confident in my abilities and I am very proficient at what I do.  I recommend this course to every other Company XO that I meet, because I know it will help them. Thanks, Chuck!

This is the best money I’ve spent on my professional development.  I had spent a few months as a Company XO before I found this course online. I felt lost in my job.  I didn’t get much guidance from my commander and I wasn’t sure what I should be doing. Chuck laid it all out clearly and explained what my job was, what my priorities should be, and how I should work with my Company Commander and 1SG. What I like about the course is that it is short and to the point. There’s no fluff.  It’s a quick and easy read. And the CD is great because I can listen to it in my car on my way to drill weekend. Invest the money. You will be happy that you did.

  1. Good day Sir,

    I’m currently a 1LT in a reserve medical TDA unit heavily focus on admin task because of the fact that we are not having the luxury accessing weapons and vehicles, on top of that we are surrounded and almost formed with some NCOs and Officers that has been staying in the unit for entire military career and never seek out other opportunities. Me as a newly assigned S1 OIC come to the unit feeling frustrated and almost close to no clue of what can I contribute other than develop my own HR team for now. Knowing that your course may help many other juniors to develop, is the course still available for purchase? would it be an online format or an actual package?
    Nevertheless, greatly appreciated for the time and effort gather these information together!

  2. Sir,
    I really appreciate the kind of content you put in your videos! I’m an Mday 1SG and we face unique challenges in the Guard, as you know. I believe this is the kind of info my 2LT’s need to learn about being an effective XO and officer in general. I also put out videos in an effort to bring training to Soldiers. If you have time and think they are useful then please share with others. Again sir, thanks for the effort!
