PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- Sailors and Marines representing the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT) domain senior enlisted leadership attended a leadership workshop, Feb. 9-11, aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola.

Command master chiefs, command sergeants major and designated senior enlisted leaders from CNATT's 18 learning sites -- primarily located at fleet concentration areas, as well as in Hawaii and Japan -- met at the CNATT Headquarters building in an effort to strengthen leadership skills and remaining an integral part of the leadership triad, according to CNATT Command Master Chief (AW/SW) Michael Knowles.

"These Sailors and Marines are all leaders in their respective rates and [Military Occupational Series]," he said. "Ensuring that we're all on the same page and that we are directing, at the deckplate level, the CNATT mission and vision while ensuring the thousands of students passing through our doors are trained, is something workshops such as this bolsters."

Knowles said this year's three-day conference -- the second year CNATT activities' senior enlisted leaders were able to gather -- has proven a constructive method to fine tune communication, leadership techniques, and interaction with junior officers, as well as the teamwork for which the chiefs mess has become known.

"Our strength as senior enlisted leaders is our communication and networking capabilities," he said. "As the enlisted leaders of a geographically diverse organization responsible for training nearly 120,000 students annually -- just about every enlisted aviation service member -- being able to share the knowledge of some of the most senior people in enlisted Naval Aviation is imperative to the continued development of our command and our Sailors."

The workshop included leadership and ethics training, key Navy programs, team building, and leadership development. The senior enlisted advisors also had the opportunity to meet and interact with key personnel from the CNATT headquarters staff.

CNATT is headquartered aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola and develops, delivers and supports aviation technical training at 27 sites located throughout the continental United States and Japan.

CNATT is a technical training agent for the Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE) an organization designed to advance and sustain Naval Aviation warfighting capabilities at an affordable cost, and is the largest training center under Naval Education and Training Command.
