I've heard plenty of Chiefs and LPOs give these kind of talks. I was even accused of it a time or too myself as a Department Head... I always found it amusing the way things were done in the Navy, where we took 10 steps to do one step in PMS, while we tore apart perfectly good working machinery to see why it still worked, often creating problems in the process...

LCDR Rabbah Rona Matlow, I know, right??? I never understood why I had to tag out an operational system, take it apart, clean it, put it back together, and then do that (take apart/put back together) 3 or 4 more times until I got the equipment working again!!!

Lol. Kind of reminds me of an Army Safety Briefing. Briefings are supposed to be brief in a perfect world. Back to the real world, they are longings.

The title says it all! That is my kind of humor. Very funny. And the troops were playing Bingo in the back of the formation! He is, after all, “the epitome of Naval leadership.” (no disrespect to our Navy members; it's all in good fun)

CW5 (Join to see), no offense taken Chief! This is the exact type of thing Sailors would do in a situation like this. I'm fairly confident this article was written by a former Sailor!

What about the pre-meeting to the pre-meeting about the meeting?  Have you ever had this happen because of a micromanager?
