The Business Analogy For Staff Officers

LEADERSHIP – GNATS 14 APRIL 2012

DSOs = Senior Managers (Subject Matter Experts)

DDCs = Directors

DIRs (National) = Senior Directors

keys for staff officers
Keys for staff officers…

LEADERSHIP – GNATS 14 APRIL 2012

Above FSO, little actual work

The member with the most VEs might not be the best FSO-VE or SO-VE

Staff officers shouldn’t report to themselves

Suggestion – SOs should be an FSO in another discipline

DSO, SO and FSOs must know the units’ goals

lets focus on a few available tools
Lets focus on a few available tools
  • The basic document of the Auxiliary – the AUXMAN
