Insights to Ensuring Subordinates' Success- There are also many observations and insights on how operational commanders are setting command and control conditions for their subordinates' success. There are several interrelated key elements that can set the conditions for success. Among those are: A focus on personal relationships, and building trust and confidence Absolute inclusion with our interagency partners, recognizing that they are an essential part of the team, while understanding constraints, limitations, and capabilities Mission-type orders providing the "what" versus "how" of operations, and Enabling components or subordinates with the appropriate authorities and resources to accomplish interorganizational coordination at their respective levels Use of Technology for Collaboration -When sharing information and collaborating remember that both physical and virtual collaboration allows the inclusion of mission partners and other stakeholders. Don't rely on virtual (or technical) means. Relationships and collaboration is most often a human, hands-on endeavor. Don't allow technical information sharing shortfalls, gaps, and seams to damage your interaction and inclusion with these valuable stakeholders, all of whom are as comfortable with electronic information sharing or communication through PowerPoint. Personal relationships are still critical. Best Practices for Information Sharing and Collaboration - Using these best practices when information sharing or collaborating will help build trust and confidence with mission partners and other external stakeholders: Establish information sharing and collaboration protocols to work with external organizations. If possible, use existing and accepted protocols. Don't plan in isolation - allow for an interactive and dynamic interface to enable collaboration Determine information sharing means in terms of the network, web portals, and email to allow for inclusion of your interorganizational stakeholders. Ensure all parties maintain shared situational awareness and have access to all relevant information. There are numerous push and pull means to share information - the appropriate method is dictated by type of information and its urgency Communicate to be understood by limiting terms and phrases that are specific to military lexicon. Avoid the use of acronyms. Attempt to understand the terminology used by external stakeholders - we must learn theirs and help them by translating ours

Cooperation and Trust in Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE - Collaboration between military health and NGO healthcare providers provided a winning combination during Haiti Relief operations. The United States Southern Command Partnership Directorate was the key in conducting Theater Security Cooperations, or TSC, health engagements prior to the earthquake. They laid the foundation work in Operation CONTINUING PROMISE, an annual humanitarian civic assistance operation, a year earlier. The trust and relationships built during this and other TSC events proved important to saving lives during UNIFIED RESPONSE.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
