After working with dispirited young sailors for some years I offer the
following two experiences that seem to help them begin their growth. The
first is a break from their past. The ancient right of passage seems
necessary. In the services the boot camp and separation from their family
and friends seems to force the person to fall back on their own resources.
This is exactly where the second experience seems essential, it is a
victory a success. I have seen young people literally blossom once they
see themselves as successful.
By the way, the best people to assist the young sailor seems to be that
old rough tough Chief Petty Officer. They are great mentors and coaches.
Do you have a CEO who needs some leadership coaching? Go find yourself a
retired Navy CPO.
