What was the biggest challenge you have encountered?
Understanding the many different manners in which NCOs are recruited, trained, employed and empowered in all the nations represented at HQ MNCNE. With 30 different member nations, NATO draws strength from unity while using diversity to build a better team. Our MNCNE NCO corps is very diverse, with different backgrounds, experiences and training. Translating this to realistic and attainable expectations was my biggest challenge.
