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.

The command triad is a myth
Thanks to Jeff Bacon. http://broadside.navytimes.com
The Navy's notion of a command triad is largely a myth. The team of CO, XO and CMC (SEL) is important to the success of any Navy command. There is no question that commands do significantly better when these three individuals operate as a team. But is there really a 'command' triad? More than a small number of commands are operating without a cohesive team at the top. Trying to run a command with a weak member of that group is devastating. It's as difficult as trying to balance something atop a tree legged stool.
