Acknowledging Predecessor Successes
I can promise you that former Commanding Officers, Executive Officers and Command Master Chiefs don't get many (if any) letters like the one above. Thanks Skipper Malloy! If you've ever received one, I would be grateful if you shared it with me. This relates back to my post (HERE) about Captain David Marquet's book "Turn This Ship Around".
Going from worst to first is a challenge but there's only one way to go. Taking over an exceptional command and sustaining that excellence may be more of a challenge. Getting to the next level may be monumental, while falling back into the old habit of mediocrity may be more likely.
