2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Operational Risk Management (ORM) Good News/Bad News The good news - problems and mishaps always happen to the other guy The bad news - to everyone else, YOU are the other guy Refer to COMDTINST for full details on Operational Risk Management – TCT Elements In Review
2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Situational Awareness We must know what is going on around us to make good decisions. Plans are critical to success, that is for sure…but we must be ready to change. This will decrease the likelihood of poor decision making. TCT Elements In Review
2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Adaptability The ability to react to changes in conditions, crew fitness, equipment failures, etc. Based on situational awareness. Leaders do not necessarily have all the answers. Good Leaders do take advantage of everyones ideas and experience and remain adaptable to new conditions and challenges. TCT Elements In Review
2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Communication Verbal and non-verbal (facial expressions, etc.) Must ensure that the person or persons we communicate with have a clear understanding of what we wish to convey. Closing the feedback loop. Ask for feedback / observe behavior to be sure the message was received. The key is a two way expression, either verbally or non- verbally, that confirms the communication process was completed. TCT Elements In Review
2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Leadership Leadership is not about giving orders. Leaders do find ways to obtain the willing participation of others towards accomplishing a goal. Goal must be consistent with the Coast Guards core values as well as consistent with the mission at hand. Since we cannot order anyone to do anything, we must strive to achieve the respect, confidence and loyalty of those entrusted to our care, regardless of position. TCT Elements In Review
2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Assertiveness Be assertive, but not aggressive. The aggressive person seeks to bully his/her way though situations for their own ego or self image. An assertive person cares about the mission more than themselves and their ego. Communicate your concerns, but try to get resolution without stepping on those who disagree. TCT Elements In Review
2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response Decision Making Making good decisions is really the heart of TCT. We must act or perform in a manner that maximizes mission success and minimizes risk. The other elements of TCT all play a role in improving those decisions. TCT Elements In Review
Decision Making We define a problem or condition, seek information about that problem, analyze that information, identify alternatives and select alternatives. Then we measure our success or failure in order to adjust our course of action. TCT Elements In Review 2012 TCT Refresher Session Department of Response
Decision Making This process can take us 20 seconds in the case of routine decisions, or 20 months in the case of large complex problems. The process is the same, …the depth of analysis and level of importance is always changing TCT Refresher Session Department of Response TCT Elements In Review
