NAVY VALUES

SERVING AUSTRALIA WITH PRIDE

NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

Serving Australia with Pride Serving Australia with Pride introduces Navy’s vision, motto and mission, and defines the values and behaviours that are expected of all Navy people. It explains the Navy’s expectations of you, and also what you can expect from the Navy. The values define what is important to the Navy as a whole and to its people individually. They communicate to others what makes us distinctive as an organisation, and what we collectively stand for. To help us live out the values, I have endorsed ten signature behaviours. These behaviours describe us at our best - how we ideally live and work together on a day to day basis in the Navy. They apply at sea and ashore, on duty and off. When we are behaving in accordance with these signature behaviours we will be living out our Navy values. I see the Navy’s values and signature behaviours as vital to ensuring we all enjoy being part of a professional work environment that makes and executes strategic decisions, supports people during and beyond their service and empowers everyone to make a respected contribution. We will all need to work at this. Personally, I will use our values and signature behaviours continuously to guide my actions and the decisions that I make and execute for the Navy to ensure our vision and mission are realised.

R.H.CRANE, AM, CSM Vice Admiral Chief of Navy Sep 2009

NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

Our vision is to be: An Australian Navy renowned for excellence in service to the nation

Our vision is consistently interpreted and shared by all through our motto: Navy - Serving Australia with Pride

Which we will deliver through our mission: To fight and win in the maritime environment

We demonstrate what we stand for through our values: Honour, Honesty, Courage, Integrity and Loyalty

We live our values through our signature behaviours: 1. Respect the contribution of every individual 2. Promote the wellbeing and development of all Navy people 3. Communicate well and regularly 4. Challenge and innovate 5. Be cost conscious 6. Fix problems, take action 7. Drive decision making down 8. Strengthen relationships across and beyond Navy 9. Be the best I can 10. Make Navy proud, make Australia proud

NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

WHY HAVE VALUES AND BEHAVIOURS? Knowing our values and what they stand for is critical to every person working in and supporting the Navy. Whether we are working within the Navy or representing the Navy in the community, the values make clear:



What the Navy collectively stands for and what brings Navy’s people together



What is important to the Navy and therefore what we should jointly work towards



What is considered acceptable or unacceptable in the Navy environment



How to act and interact with others, whether this be our shipmates, colleagues, superiors, subordinates, Defence partners or the broader community



What we can reasonably expect of others, and what they will expect of us



How to make principles based decisions rather than needing a rule for every situation

In short, the values provide a compass to keep us moving in the right direction. Similarly, knowing our ten signature behaviours is equally as important. This is because these behaviours spell out for us how we can live Navy’s values in a more tangible way. If we all commit to living Navy’s values and signature behaviours each member will feel a sense of pride, achievement, fulfilment and personal satisfaction.

OUR VALUES

HONOUR Honour is the fundamental value on which the Navy’s and each person’s reputation depends. Honour reflects our moral and ethical standards. It demands strength of will and inspires physical effort and selfless service. Honour guides our actions in a way explicit rules cannot; it shapes our conscience and determines our notions of pride, self-respect and shame. Honour is about the pride we feel in ourselves and each other, knowing that we have given our all to complete our mission professionally. Honour is about the every day actions we take to ensure that we do the best we can by each other. When we consistently behave with honour we gain the trust, respect and support of our shipmates and our community.

œ˜œÕÀ NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

HONESTY Honesty is always being true to ourselves, our shipmates and our colleagues. Honesty demands we face our shortcomings. We must be open and upfront with each other and ourselves. Honesty drives personal and professional growth. A lack of honesty hinders improvement, allows incompetence to be swept under the carpet and encourages failings to be ignored. Honesty enables us to serve with a clear conscience, sincerity and selflessness. Honesty means recognising, admitting to, and correcting our own mistakes. We all need to be honest with the people we work with, even if providing difficult feedback sometimes feels uncomfortable. We need to create an environment where people are not scared to be honest. Our safety, mission effectiveness and success depend on it.

œ˜iÃÌÞ NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

COURAGE Courage is the strength of character to do what is right in the face of adversity. Courage demands unwavering obedience to moral principles. Courage drives responsibility, humility and personal example. No amount of education or experience can overcome a deficiency of courage. Courage is about knowing that the job we have to do is worth the risk and being committed to getting it done. Courage is not just about physical bravery. It includes the courage to be responsible and to stand up for our beliefs and morals. Courage sometimes means confronting our own limitations and recognising the weaknesses in our own habits and attitudes.

œÕÀ>}i NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

INTEGRITY Integrity is being committed to always doing what is right, no matter what the consequences. Integrity is unforgiving: if it’s not right, don’t do it - if it’s not true, don’t say it. Our integrity defines our moral power and underpins our fighting spirit. As people of integrity we confront and overcome wrong regardless of personal cost. Integrity means being genuine and acting in accordance with what we think and believe to be right. Integrity is being trustworthy and transparent in our actions and words. Integrity is measured by how closely our actions reflect our personal standards, and how consistently we behave.

˜Ìi}ÀˆÌÞ NAVY VALUES - Serving Australia with Pride

LOYALTY Loyalty is being committed to each other and to our duty of service to Australia. Loyalty is a reciprocal obligation of our shared and mutual commitments to each other and to the nation. It requires we acknowledge commendable effort and that we accept responsibility and accountability for our actions and for those of our subordinates. Loyalty to your shipmates and colleagues means respecting them as individuals and treating them fairly and courteously. Loyalty is about standing by your family, friends and the Navy through the bad times as well as the good. Collectively we are responsible to support Navy’s individuals, families and partners who contribute to fulfilling our mission.

OUR SIGNATURE BEHAVIOURS

To assist us in demonstrating the values in a practical sense, the Navy has ten signature behaviours. They focus on three important parts of Navy life our: People, Performance and Professionalism. The signature behaviours reflect the Navy’s desired culture, which supports people during and beyond their service, makes and executes decisions, and empowers everyone to make a respected contribution. Through the consistent demonstration of these signature behaviours by all personnel, the Navy will successfully adopt and sustain this desired culture.
