NLEC LogoThe Naval Leadership and Ethics Center (NLEC) is headquartered at Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island, with locations in Dam Neck, Virginia and San Diego, California.

Each year, NLEC prepares the command triad (master chiefs/chiefs of the boat, executive officers, and commanding officers) for leadership success.

As a prospective command leader, you're about to serve in one of the most demanding and rewarding positions in the U.S. Navy
Preparing for the Demands of Command

It’s important for future command-level Navy leaders and department heads to be proficient in their areas of expertise, and it’s also imperative that they demonstrate personal integrity and ethical leadership. Our goal is for NLEC participants to leave Newport ready to instill teamwork to effectively communicate with Sailors under their command.

NLEC’s programming focuses on developing an effective, integrated command triad, as well as in preparing commanding officers’ and command chief spouses for their support role. The center also provides short-term leadership training for other Navy department heads.

Curriculum Development

Our interactive curriculum includes thought-provoking case studies, one-on-one coaching, and other training exercises.

Our faculty and staff members design courses and create educational materials that emphasize ethical decision making at all levels of Navy leadership. They also pursue cutting-edge research in areas of command climate, self-awareness, and organizational culture.
