CAPT Greg McWherter
US Navy CAPT Greg McWherter recently retired. The comments from another Blog were very clear that he was an outstanding boss and naval officer (though some controversy as commander of the Blue Angels).
The real test of leadership is how others see the leader as the boss….most of us encounter others as bosses or leaders….yet few may be considered as great and/or outstanding.
Great bosses almost have an instinct for what it takes….while others may have to learn those skills. However, one gets to being a great boss….those who do make it are few and far in- between. Just because someone makes it to an 0-6 (CAPT or COL) rank doesn’t necessarily make them a great boss.
