Being a Great Division Officer (Part 4)
"But just as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love . . ." (2 Cor. 8:7)
This is part 4 of a series intended to equip tactical level leaders for excellence upon appointment to their position of responsibility.
- Be knowledgeable. Know your people holistically – who they are on and off the ship. Know who and what is important to them and then remember to talk to them about those things. Assess your people and know their strengths and weaknesses in order to employ them effectively. Know your equipment and programs. Know 3-M, OMMS-NG, DC and every critical program you are responsible for. Be the subject matter expert.
