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 (even at 30 years). The uniform is in the closet but, he still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. But, he just doesn't try hard enough. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time.

How Generals Respond
How does an O-10 General Officer respond to an O-6 Navy Captain when the Captain offers constructive criticism? Just the way you would expect the O-10 to respond - with promptness and alacrity. When I told General Stan McChrystal recently that I loved his McChrystal Group website but thought that his presence on YouTube could be improved, he said "Thanks" and they were doing just that - IMPROVING! The General has some awesome leadership tips on YouTube and his group plans to add many more. You can check out his leadership tips HERE. This group has their 'stuff' in one sock.
