6/5/2013 7:45:27 PMThe only high performance team I have been part of was my 2007 detachment. We deployed to the middle east andwas so successful that we became the model for all detachments to follow for both coasts. The reason we wereso successful was that leadership of the team listened to proposals, took action on the ones that were evenmediocre. The lowest person want to ensure the team succeeded so they looked for ways to improve. Since their suggestions were take on they were willing to make more. This improved the lines of communication and free flow of ideas. The team was able to fix the big issues fast and tackle the small ones that plagued other detachments. By thetime we were done, we had successfully completed 105% of our missions, did it at the lowest cost per flight hour,and had such a high level of moral that the team still talks to this day, even though we have all gone our separateways. This is what makes a team great.

6/5/2013 10:34:49 PMI can truly attest to being a member of a high performance team thanks to service in the Marines. While a MarineOfficer Candidate, our Commanding Officer (CO) challenged us to put together a team of Navy and Marine OCs as aperformance drill team. We did so and were paraded around the unit and campus thanks to the leadership of RickBaker, USN. He was very creative in his routines but exact in delivery and to keep up we had to match. As aCorpsman, he trained with and worked directly with Marines so he knew how to relate to us just as easily as hisfellow Seamen. We were given a final challenge to perform in Mardi Gras. These challenges did nothing more thatempower us to go above and beyond in training for the event. Unfortunately, Mr. Baker was injured due to aperformance misjudgment and had to rotate out. Even being a man down, we were able to carry on and workedeven harder to make our team leader proud of our actions. We were empowered by the task at hand and the desireto succeed at all costs. This is one quality of a high performance team that is inherit in the US Armed forces. Thisand there is a sense of unit cohesion, where we are more like a family than a simple team. We felt each other's painand worked to make the others proud.

6/8/2013 1:52 PMI have been part of several high performance teams but the one that has left the most lasting impression would be afighter/strikefighter aircraft live ordnance upload/download team. I have had the privilege of playing a role as eachmember of this elite style team by coming up the ranks as a Team Member (TM), then Team Leader (TL), then Quality Assurance Safety Observer (QASO) and finally Ordnance Flightdeck Crew Leader.A team typically consists of 4 TMs, 1 TL, 1 QASO and Crew Leader overseas multiple teams at a time. Synchronicityand clear, precise, loud commands are required during any given live ordnance upload evolution and can bechallenging when there are several strickfighter aircraft blazing hot jet exhaust down your throat as you and theaircraft are battling sound dominance as you TL the commands to your TMs. The QASO ensures everybody isfollowing “exact” protocol so that we do not go home in body bags, nor do our shipmates carrying-out other ops ondeck.A typical GBU or free falling conventional bomb upload with 2 TMs on the nose of the bomb, 2 TMs on the tail of thebomb, 1 TL working the bomb rack while simultaneously yelling commands and the QASO off to the side observingevery move goes as follows:
“Nose” (visual confirmation from TMs they are ready
“Tail” (visual confirmation from TMs they are ready)
“Bring it Up”
Down nose, up tail, up tail I said!!!
