33 NOAA’s coastal programs at critical point FY’08 OMB Passback: “the effectiveness of these programs is limited by the lack of a cohesive and collective strategic mission and management structure.” OMB asked NOAA to: Pick 1 to 3 priority challenges to focus on for increased integration; Create a structure that drives coordination, but not a new bureaucracy; and capitalize on existing activities. NOAA responded in September. Defined common goals on hazard resilient coastal communities and coastal development. OMB Direction is an Opportunity. 33Town Hall — Silver Spring Figure: County Population Change (1970 – 2000) in 1000’s of people Red: coastal counties Green: non-coastal counties

40 “Never let your ego get so close to your position that when your position goes, your ego goes with it.” “Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.” “The day [your team] stop[s] bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.” “Have fun in your command. Don’t always run at a breakneck pace. Take leave when you’ve earned it. Spend time with your families. Corollary: Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard.” Source: American Management Association magazine Management Review 40Town Hall — Silver Spring

41 1. Never lose sight of the ultimate goal, and focus energy on short-term objectives. 2. Set a personal example with visible, memorable symbols and behaviors. 3. Instill optimism and self-confidence, but stay grounded in reality. 4. Take care of yourself: Maintain your stamina and let go of guilt. 5. Reinforce the team message constantly: “We are one-we live or die together.” 6. Minimize status differences and insist on courtesy and mutual respect. 7. Master conflict-deal with anger in small doses, engage dissidents, and avoid needless power struggles. 8. Find something to celebrate and something to laugh about. 9. Be willing to take the Big Risk. 10. Never give up - there’s always another move. Source: Leading at the Edge By: Dennis N.T. Perkins 41Town Hall — Silver Spring
