THIS Signature Behaviour asks us to
work together to identify and achieve
common purposes and objectives,
build inclusive partnerships, and
deliver on Navy's promises.
This behaviour was recently the
central focus of Exercise Talisman

Sydney's Commanding Officer,
CAPT Luke Charles-Jones, believes
building strong relations within the
ADF and with US military assets is
paramount to achieving success in the
joint operations arena.
"In the last two years, we have

CAPT Charles-Jones said.
"It requires us to understand how
to operate in a coalition environment
with our Army and Air Force counter-

doing, what our roles are, what the
constraints are and how we can assist
each other to achieve overall success,"
LEUT Parker said.
"It also benefits Navy culture; it
makes our jobs more enjoyable. We
interact and gain a better understand-

lot."LEUT Beau Mulraney, one of the
Maritime Warfare Officers in Sydney
during Talisman Sabre 2011, believes
this particular Signature Behaviour can
assist everyone within the Navy.
"Good Navy culture is about foster-
ing productive relationships; there are
more than 200 people in one ship and
we are working together to achieve an
aim," LEUT Mulraney said.
"Therefore, the stronger the
relationships and communication
channels on board, the more cohesive
the unit is."
