Written by Coast Guard Commandant, Adm. Karl Schultz:
As the Coast Guard continues to support national efforts combating COVID-19, the social distancing required to preserve readiness presents a prime opportunity to grow personally and professionally. The 2020 Coast Guard Professional Development List is based on recommendations from the more junior members of the workforce and provides some great suggestions for continual learning and growth.
This year’s list covers a wide array of topics that have direct links to today’s Coast Guard including mental and physical health, military leadership, financial wellness, Coast Guard history, and many more thought-providing subjects.
Their recommendations also highlight the outstanding talent we have throughout our ranks and the tremendous value of everyone’s unique perspectives and interests.
