I am very anxious to go to this conference. I am very privileged to go because I was chosen out of six people to go to the conference. The conference is will involve two workshop sessions in the morning and a keynote speaker in the afternoon. I'm sure it will prove to be a very rewarding conference that will broaden my leadership skills. This is very important if I am to take on a role as a senior officer in the regiment. I'll be sure to blog about my time at the leadership conference.
On Tuesday this week we had a guest speaker for our weekly leadership meetings. Our guest was a Steve Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan has written the book Leading at Mach 2 which he provided all of with a copy. He spoke about different types of leaders and how we can develop the people that we are leading. I took a great deal away from his lecture. I can certainly see myself implementing a lot of what I learned from him into my own leadership style.
Today in Shiphandling 1 we took the T/V Ranger on a navigational training voyage to Woods Hole and back. It was very exciting to use all of our coastal navigation skills to get us there. The only thing that could be better is the weather. At least this week wasn't foggy.
