E-OSC and the Culture of Excellence
Expanded Operational Stress Control (E-OSC) is an important part of the Navy’s Culture of Excellence. Every great culture benefits from people working together to accomplish significant goals, and also to look after each other along the way. E-OSC is a peer-to-peer program which is built from evidence-based practices to build and sustain toughness and resilience.
The E-OSC Team leader works within the Command Resilience Team to identify factors that affect crew resilience. They have been trained in tools which will help them to enhance those factors which support resilience and to mitigate those factors which reduce resilience.  
There truly is strength in numbers, and when people work together to partner in building resilience, it will improve everyone’s ability to persevere, adapt, and grow through the challenges they face.
