    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your junior personnel. Understand who motivates your young officers and enlisted personnel. Make ways to improve processes, not complicate them.

    Committees and meetings only take away from the day to day operations. Improve efficiency through balance and sensible objectives. Streamline communications.

    Promote Homesteading and don't hold staying at one command as a negative. With the poor economy, the personnel are being put at a serious disadvantage by changes in duty stations.

    Protect the benefits that personnel have earned it,

    Respect and honor your subordinates. They're the life blood of the unit.

    Love your job and help others grow and achieve their goals.

    Streamline processes to improve efficiency.

    Have a worldwide credentialling body to minimize downtime from changing duty stations.

    Improve and streamline promotions.

    Help spouses with career development.

    Extended educational benefits to spouses and children.
