Commanding Officer Observations
We asked participating commanders this question: To what extent would you recommend this program for other squadrons? Here are a few of their comments:
"I think it is one of the best, if not the best tool to help shape a command and make positive corrections/adjustments. The concept, approach and execution were fantastic."
"As the highlighted issues mirrored the CSA/ MCAS, plans were already in place to mitigate the concerns of my sailors. The Workshop brought to my attention some better examples of the issues than the CSA/ MCAS could and presented new methods of attacking the problems.:
"This is hands down the best tool for commanding officers to identify areas in need of improvement."
"We were very pleased with both the process and the discussion it generated. I would highly recommend this program to all squadrons and used the information provided to me as a means to back-brief leaders at all levels."
"t was the first time I had detailed mentoring from a Marine colonel. My MAG CO is actively engaged in 10 squadrons allowing for detail mentoring and observations for improvement being less precise and more holistic. The insight and recommendations were priceless and allowed me to validate my campaign and rudder change on others that needed emphasis. Highly recommend it. Those that resist are hiding something!"
"This program is a must for incoming COs."
