CSADD: SUPPORT FOR YOUNG SAILORS Representatives from Navy Personnel Command's (NPC) fleet engagement team will visit Norfolk, 27-28 August (and San Diego the week of 23 September) to discuss the latest personnel policies' impact on the fleet. While some briefings will be directed at Sailors themselves, a major goal of this trip is to "ensure command leadership teams understand current manpower programs," according to the head enlisted community manage, CAPT Bruce Deshotel. Max participation and involvement from all levels of the chain of command is critical to making the fleet engagement a success. Ensure your commands are participating at the maximum level possible and be prepared to ask questions and actively engage. Briefings will be at Naval Air Station Oceana on 27 August and Naval Station Norfolk 28 August.

FLEET ENGAGEMENT TEAMS SET TO HIT THE FLEET A junior Sailor in a new command might feel lost. Whether fresh out of A-school, or tackling their first or second tour, peers are in a position to help with career and personal issues. The Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) is one initiative to let Sailors know that shipmates can help. Another tool that can prevent trending toward destructive behavior is a solid Sponsorship program. Study after study shows that good "onboarding" of newcomers improves their team assimilation, job satisfaction and performance. A Sailor's first 72 hours in a new command is critical. Ensure your indoc programs have command involvement and set your new Sailors up for success.
