7 Core Value CAP Core Values ( CAP Core Values (approved Winter Board, Feb 1999) Integrity Integrity Volunteer Service Volunteer Service Excellence Excellence Respect Respect Air Force Core Values (published 1997) Air Force Core Values (published 1997) Integrity First Integrity First Service Before Self Service Before Self Excellence In All We Do Excellence In All We Do

8 As of: 1200 Hours 15 November 2001 8 What are Air Force Core Values? "Our Core Values, Integrity first, Service before self and Excellence in all we do, set the common standard for conduct across the Air Force. These values inspire the trust which provides the unbreakable bond that unifies the force. We must practice them ourselves and expect no less from those with whom we serve." General Michael E. Ryan Chief of Staff United States Air Force

9 What are CAP Core Values? Well, they’re actually quite simple. These values represent a cultural commitment within Civil Air Patrol: to practice basic honesty, to give of one’s self for the betterment of humanity, to deliver top quality services, and to treat others fairly. In summary, core values require all CAP members to exemplify the highest standards of personal and professional conduct. As former Air Force Chief of Staff General Ronald Fogleman said, core values must guide our daily actions --- “even when no one else is watching.” CAP P 50-2

10 As of: 1200 Hours 15 November 2001 10 What are Air Force Core Values? “ They are the values that anchor resolve in the most difficult situations. They are the values that buttress mental and physical courage when we enter combat. In essence, they are the three pillars of professionalism that provide the foundation for the military leadership at every level.” “They provide a common ground and compass by which we can all measure our ideals and actions.” -Secretary of the Air Force Widnall

11 As of: 1200 Hours 15 November 2001 11 CAP Core Values Integrity Volunteer Service ExcellenceRespect

12 12 Integrity Willingness to do the Right Thing …even when no one is looking The Bedrock of Professionalism Integrity is the ability to hold together and properly regulate all of the elements of a personality. A person of integrity, for example, is capable of acting on convictions. A person of integrity can control impulses and appetites.

13 13 Moral Traits of Integrity Courage Courage To do right even at high personal cost Honesty Honesty Our word is our bond. Don’t “pencil-whip” readiness reports, tech data violations… Responsibility Responsibility Acknowledge duties, act accordingly Openness Openness Free flow of information…provide and seek feedback

14 14 Moral Traits of Integrity Accountability Accountability Don’t shift blame… “The buck stops here.” Justice Justice Similar acts get similar rewards/punishments Self Respect Self Respect Do not bring discredit upon self Humility Humility Sobered by awesome responsibility of task The higher the position/rank, the greater the humility

15 15 Service Professional Duties Take Precedence Over Personal Duties Behaviors Rule following Rule following Do ones duty Respect for Others Respect for Others Place troops ahead of personal comfort Critical for an effective work environment Discipline and Self Control Discipline and Self Control Anger--Refrain from public displays of anger Appetites--Sexual overtures to those you out rank; chemical abuse Religious tolerance--Religion is a matter of individual conscience Do not indulge in self–pity, discouragement, defeatism Faith in the System Faith in the System Avoid the view that you know better than those above you Strike a tone of confidence and forward looking optimism To lose faith in the system is to place Self before Service

16 16 Service “ The Air Force (and CAP) requires a high level of professional skill, …commitment, and a willingness to make personal sacrifices. Unfortunately, we’ve all seen what happens when people forget that basic tenet. Examples of careerism and self interest are present at every level, but they do the most damage when they are displayed by the leader. If the leader is unwilling to sacrifice individual goals for the good of the organization, it’s hard to convince other unit members to do so. At that point, the mission suffers, and the ripple effects can be devastating.” -Secretary Widnall

17 17 Careerism and Self Interest? Darleen Druyun a senior Air Force weapons buyer responsible for $30 billion of purchases every year. Plead guilty to inflating the price of a contract to favor her future employer, Boeing. Arranged jobs at Boeing for her daughter, her daughter’s fiancé, and herself at a $250,000 salary. She was sentenced to nine months in jail for corruption. Darleen Druyun

18 As of: 1200 Hours 15 November 2001 18 Servant "Chief Gary Pfingston was an American who always put his country first, a father who always put his family first, and a simply great NCO who always put the Air Force first. I don't know how he did this, how he managed to put three things first, seeming to violate the laws of physics. Maybe he was able to do it because he never paid any attention to himself, and that made a lot of room for the things he loved.” General McPeak Chief of Staff United States Air Force Chief Pfingston recently passed away. He was the 10th Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force and held this highest Air Force enlisted position during Desert Storm, the first Gulf War. He served as Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force from Aug 1990 to Octr 1994. Chief Pfingston recently passed away.

22 22 Are you ready to be Excellent?? “It’s not the will to win that matters…everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters” Paul “Bear” Bryant Paul “Bear” Bryant

23 23 Excellence -- Are You Prepared to Make A Difference? “To every person, there comes in their lifetime that special moment when they are tapped on the shoulder and offered that chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared and unqualified for the work that would be their finest hour.” ~ Winston Churchill

24 Respect CAP members come from all walks of life. Therefore, it is extremely important that members treat each other with fairness and dignity, and work together as a team. To do otherwise would seriously impair CAP’s capability to accomplish the mission.

31 As of: 1200 Hours 15 November 2001 31 The Core Values Continuum Every level has to “Walk the Talk” What happens if a supervisor tells his new CAP member, "Core Values? That's what they taught you as a cadet? Now, let me tell you how we really do it." What happens if a supervisor tells his new CAP member, "Core Values? That's what they taught you as a cadet? Now, let me tell you how we really do it." It won't do any good to educate our people in the Core Values if leaders don't also live them.

32 As of: 1200 Hours 15 November 2001 32 The Core Values Continuum We need to fix our organizations first! A culture of compromise is as likely to be the result of bad policies and programs as it is to be character flaws of our people.
