Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.

Office of the Director of National Intelligence Receives Accolades from Harvard University’s Ash Institute
"The Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School announced, on 10 September 2008, that the Intelligence Community Civilian Joint Duty Program is a winner of the 2008 Innovations in American Government Awards. This program of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence promotes (1) cross collaboration and (2) knowledge transfer across the entire intelligence community.
Under the guidelines of the Joint Duty program, all Intelligence Community employees are evaluated under the same performance standards, no matter which of the 16 agencies they may serve. Such standards include:
how well they collaborate,
share information, and
take integrated action across agency boundaries.
Executives receive annual feedback from superiors, staff, and peers, throughcomprehensive 360-degree reviewsstandardized across all agencies. While formal outcomes are classified, the program is already receiving much anecdotal acclaim."
Sounds like good leadership to me. Apparently, it is award winning leadership !!
