Shorelines march 2012

  1. 1. SHORELINES Serving Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky March 2012 Navy Recruiting Master Chief’s Leading from the Front A typical Navy command consists of one Senior Enlisted Sailor, normally a Command Master Chief (CMC) guiding junior Sailors and acting as the liaison to the Commanding Officer. At Navy Recruiting District (NRD) Ohio, that job is spearheaded by two Master Chiefs, Command Master Chief (CMDCM) Aaron Ship- ley and Chief Recruiter (CR) Clemente James. Both of them have always showed unity at NRD Ohio whether it is on the road talking to young sailors and their families or being able to go on the quarterly road show to show thanks to their Sailors. It goes a long way to help keep a commands structure strong, and they both maintain an open door policy for any Sailor to come in and talk to them. “There is not a more important relationship than that of the two master chiefs. Be it a ship, squadron or NRD, if the two master chiefs do not get along the mess is forced to chose sides which trickles down to divi- sion within the command. It is unacceptable and irresponsible leadership on both the CR and CMDCM if they do not get along and the command knows it.” said Shipley. “In the end it is the CMDCMs issue if the relationship is adversely affecting the command but, both should be mature enough to realize their relation- ship is not about them, its about doing whats best for the entire command.” James also feels it is important to show junior Sailors about cooperation and lead-Inside this issue: ing from the front James said “It is so important for the CR and CMC to have a great working relationship, everything that goes on at the command no matter if its production Master Chief’s 1,3 related or Sailor related the CR and CMC knows about. One should not know more than Captains Corner 2 the other. This way the Commanding Officer has to sounding boards to turn to. Every- Womens History Month 4 thing that happens no matter what, we come together and talk about it. Once we come up Command Ombudsman with a solution, we then go together as one voice and present it to the XO, and Skipper. 6 This is very important, because if the CR and CMC are not on the same page it could ruin Sailor of the Quarter 7 a command. If that happens then our Sailors suffers in the long run. It is our ultimate re- Chain of Command 8 sponsibility as Master Chiefs to take care of the SAILORS and SKIPPER, bottom line.” Continued on page 2
  2. 2. CAPTAIN’S CORNER Shipmates, First I’d like to say congratulations to all of our FY 2011 award winners and to all who had a hand in putting together another successful awards banquet. I especially want to thank everyone that served on this year’s banquet planning committee and congratulate them on a job “Well Done!” We’re already looking forward to our next banquet and welcome any inputs you have for making it better. Remember the spring months are now here and we need to practice Operational Risk Management (ORM) when performing our daily procedures. We live in an area that is no stranger to thunder- storms and tornado alerts. With the nice weather coming out re- member to stay vigilant on the road and be alert of other drivers to include motorcycles. Slow down when you drive, and be sure to give yourself extra room between you and the cars around you. Turn on your headlights whenever you drive, and always signal before youturn, not as you are turning.Finally, ensure you are prepared for any power outages that might occur this spring – especially at home.Make sure you have an emergency kit put together and that everything is in good working order. Safety foryou and your family is MY NUMBER ONE CONCERN, so double check everything and make sure you areready for a snowy winter.Thanks again, Shipmates, for everything you do. Be safe, and have a great month – and a great 2012!!
  3. 3. Navy Recruiting Master Chief’s Leading from the Front “The fact of the matter is, for this command to be successful; our Command Leadership Team (CO,XO, CMC, CR) must be effective. The ONLY way that can happen is if were working together and mutuallysupportive of each other.” Said Cmdr. Michael Hudson, Commanding Officer Navy Recruiting District Ohio.As CO, I am very fortunate, in that our two Master Chiefs clearly understand that, and have taken their profes-sional relationship to a significantly higher level than youll find in most places elsewhere. CMC Shipley believes strongly that the most important part of leadership is being able to listen to hisSailors, “My number one leadership tool as a command master chief is listening. I can talk all I want but if Imnot doing more listening than talking I have no idea what to talk about. It is the wise leader who listens twiceas much as they speak. So, getting out and talking to Sailors and family members allow me to see and hearfirst-hand their concerns and then act accordingly. It also provides our Sailors with the knowledge that we docare about their issues and want to hear about them.” On his forth CMDCM tour, but serving at a recruiting command for the first time Shipley has learnedthat there are more than just the immediate Sailors in his command, but the countless Future Sailors and theirfamilies to help also. Shipley says that having a Senior Recruiter that has dedicated so many years to helpingrecruiters and Future Sailors out has been helpful to him. James has always enjoyed being a recruiter and has learned a long time ago the importance of it. “I takebeing the Chief Recruiter seriously; I feel it is important to not only focus on productions but to be focused onthe overall well being of each and every sailor in the command.” James stressed the importance of the two tobe able to effectively communicate so we can help our Sailors out. “It is important to be able to get the information out to our Sailors in a timely and correct manner sothat they will always know whats going on in the command”, said James “Communication is the key in anyorganization, if you want your people to be happy and successful. Cmdr. Hudson agrees “Each of them knows that they have a unique role to play, based on their positionand experience, and they are very good at what they do. However, they also truly believe that without a uni-fied approach, not only will theylose the ability to capitalize on andleverage each others strengths, butso will our Sailors. They "get it" -and that makes life better for all ofus!”
  4. 4. Celebrate Womens History Month The Origins of Womens History Month Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organ- ized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa. A few years later, the idea had caught on within communities, school districts and organizations across the country. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Womens History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully peti- tioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.Test Your Knowledge of Womens History1.
