Jim Murphy - A real professional

Sailors at all levels need more than just “Zeroing in on Excellence,” but it’s a fantastic and appropriate start for the new MCPON. If taken to heart, it will go a long way toward making the best Navy better. Professional sailors will heed his words and turn them into action; amateurs will disregard his call as just another new program. As MCPON Stevens wrote, we need professionals; there is no room for amateurs. 

From Jim Murphy's excellent article in the December issue of PROCEEDINGS magazine.  You can read it all HERE.

I have been espousing the value of Command Excellence for nearly 26 years, since my first seminar in 1986.  It's ALL good stuff.  Nice to see the MCPON is onboard!!

Captain Lambert, thank you for sharing the article. I must say I was more than a little surprised to open your blog this morning and see my name in today's headline. I appreciate the description which followed, but the column is about leadership concepts we desperately need, not the author.

As always, I sincerely appreciate your support and encourage lively debate and discussion on the article.

All the best and V/R,
