From the Office of the Chief of Staff
DCOS Bruce Jones
Happy New Year everyone! We have entered 2013 and transitioned into new leadership roles for the coming year. Commodore Michael Morris has taken the helm in District 17 and is eager to get started.
First on the list is goal setting. The goals you set for your Flotilla have the potential to dramatically impact the morale, direction, and accomplishments of your flotilla. They may set your flotilla on a course that will last far into the future.
Prior to the Elected Leaders Academy for the Flotilla Commanders and Vice Flotilla Commanders, on February 21st, use the SMART Method of goal setting (below in the attached pdf. file) to establish three to five specific goals you want to accomplish this year. We will discuss your goals during the Elected Leaders Academy.
Please remember that you are not alone in your new position. Utilize your Flotilla Staff Officers, District Staff Officers and your elected chain of leadership for help and guidance along the way. Commodore Mike Morris, DCAPT Dave Brubaker and myself are here to assist you and we will do anything we can to make your term as Flotilla Commander a successful one.
The second item is preparing for the Elected Leaders Academy. Please review the attached Power Points from the Flotilla Leaders Course. The instructors will be using some of the information attached in their presentations.
I look forward to seeing you next month!
Bruce R. Jones
