out of the way' -- Chief of Navy VADM
Russ Crane to all
Below are 10 leadership principles. What do
they mean to you and how do they relate to New
Generation Navy's Signature Behaviours?
PROFICIENT: A proficient leader knows their
stuff and is trusted for that reason.
KNOW YOURSELF: Situational awareness and
self-control lead to sound judgements.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE: No aspect of leadership
is more powerful than a leader's personal exam-
ple. If you don't show honour, honesty, courage,
integrity and loyalty, then who will?
SEEK AND ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY: In the
absence of orders, a good leader will take the
KNOW YOUR PEOPLE AND PROMOTE THEIR
WELFARE: Show care and concern for people
and you will be rewarded with trust and respect.
PROVIDE DIRECTION: When an order is
required, give it clearly and with direction.
DEVELOP LEADERSHIP IN OTHERS: Leaders
delegate authority to subordinates to develop
their full potential.
SOUND DECISIONS: Successful leadership
does not mean the leader made the best deci-
sions at all times, but it does mean the leader
made good decisions in good time.
TRAIN AS A TEAM: Team spirit or mateship
depends on leadership -- personnel must have
confidence in their leader's ability and their own
ability to perform.
KEEP YOUR PEOPLE INFORMED: People
informed of the mission and the changing situa-
tion will trust and support their leader.
CHIEF of Navy VADM Russ Crane
recently participated in a Navigating
the Change (NTC) engagement at
Participation in all four NTC
sessions is a requirement for all Navy
members, with attendance recorded in
New Generation Navy (NGN)
Program Director CAPT Warren
Bairstow said that while complet-
ing NTC took time out of busy work
schedules, the presence of CN -- who
will be undertaking all four sessions --
set the example for everyone.
"CN has been involved in NGN
from the beginning and is very aware
of the principles behind it -- yet he has
said he intends to attend all four NTC
engagements," CAPT Bairstow said.
"If the busiest person in the Navy
can make time, we all can."
NTC will end mid year. If you have
not completed all of the sessions, con-
tact your command element.

One of the main elements
within New Generation Navy's
cultural change program is
the role of alcohol in the Navy.
Here are some points to
Alcohol was at the centre
of every incident on board
HMAS Success, as dis-
cussed in the COI report.
The sensible use of alco-
hol is perfectly acceptable,
however, we need to stop
situations occurring where
it leads to inappropriate and
Issues relating to alcohol
misuse are not new in the
ADF. The Service chiefs
have recognised this and
initiated the ADF Alcohol
which is being developed
in consultation with the
Australian Drug Council.
One aspect the Australian
Drug Council wants the
Navy to focus on is the role
of bystanders -- people who
do or don't step forward to
prevent negative situations
