Admiral Clark, Chief of Naval Operations
Over 260 people were assembled ranging from seaman to CNO, and all backgrounds (surface, air, sub-surface, staff corps, Marines, civilian, SPECWAR…). Held at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, the Leadership Summit piloted a new approach to change called a Large Group Intervention that utilized Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methods of facilitation. Participants were empowered to generate their own pilot projects aimed at improving leadership and our Navy’s system of leadership development.
Each CNO brings his own priorities to the table and works them during his tenure...what lives on beyond that is his LEGACY. What will your legacy be?
More on the leadership summit here. More than 30 pilot programs were undertaken. Some actually made it to implementation.
