Source of learning

Unhappy Sailors can be the Navy's greatest source of learning.  What are your unhappy Sailors telling you?  Are you listening?

I don't think we listen to our unhappy Sailors at all, or if we do it is more to go through the motions to feel like we are performing our leadership duties than it is to take any real action on what our unhappy Sailors are telling us. Our community seems to have a real issue hearing the truth or just another perception of an issue that might not paint the said issue or command in rainbows and care bears. If we did (listen) our Sailors would have the tools they need afloat, detail assignments would actually match the countless visions and roadmaps our community authored, the number of folks declining milestone would be examined and leadership might be able to admit failure in certain areas. Failure is not bad if we learn from it and correct our course of action instead of of ignoring it and steaming straight into an iceberg. Just my 2 cents
