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.

Has your wardroom discussed this?
Collaborative leadership is a powerful tool and in that spirit, we offer the attached document for your consideration. It was written by a group of passionate junior officers and senior enlisted Sailors
and is fully endorsed across the IW/CT Community Flag Deck. The words did not originate with us, but our commitment to them will be unambiguous:
Cultivate Specialized Expertise
Take Collective Ownership
Invest in Core Competencies
Foster External Partnership
We expect that our collective actions as a community will be aligned
with these guiding principles, as well as the overall culture
outlined in the document, and we ask you to hold each of us
accountable for the same. The perception of our actions being
misaligned with these words would be counter- productive, so we ask
for honest, constructive, and regular feedback. Tell us what we
need to hear, not what you think we want to hear, and we ask that
you make the same philosophy clear to those under your charge .
Please make time to read this document and discuss it with your
peers, seniors, and subordinates. Don't let this document be a
piece of "shelf-ware". We must each do our part to turn these words
into meaningful action .
