Culture of Excellence



**NEW** Culture of Excellence 2.0: Great People, Great Leaders, Great Teams

Enabled by Get Real, Get Better's (GRGB) call to think, act, and operate differently, the Navy is advancing our approach to how we build our warfighters and warfighting Teams... taking the best parts of what has made our Navy great, and building upon them, through Culture of Excellence (COE 2.0). Through this approach, GRGB principles and leadership standards are being deeply imbedded into who we are as a Navy.                         

COE 2.0 focuses on building Great People, Great Leaders, and Great Teams, with the knowledge that this is the best way to prepare for victory in combat, innovate and solve hard problems, and prevent harmful behaviors. It is built on the following:
  • Everyone is a Sailor... both Officer and Enlisted
  • Civilians are a critical part of the Navy Team... providing continuity and expertise
  • Our Core Values drive what we do... every day
  • Great People are shaped by Great Leaders... to become Great Teams
  • Our People are tough and resilient... strong in Mind, Body, and Spirit
  • Our Leaders demonstrate great character and competence... and build great culture
  • Our Teams are Connected and Inclusive... creating a sense of belonging for their People


Culture is what People do, and how they do it: the beliefs, values, norms of behavior, routines and traditions that occur throughout an organization. Culture itself is difficult to measure aside from the outcomes that are generated.

Great Culture is solving hard problems alongside People you trust and respect.

  • Solving hard problems is what makes the accomplishment of hard missions so satisfying.

  • Doing so alongside People you trust and respect means that our People feel valued as part of a Team, this includes Navy civilians who are often subject matter experts.
