PRIDE AND PROFESSIONALISM Pride and professionalism have taken their rightful place in today’s Navy. Gone is mediocrity;  permissiveness  is  about  to follow.  Enter  professionalism. —Admiral Thomas B. Hayward In 1980 Admiral Thomas B. Hayward, the 21st Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), initiated the Navy’s pride and professionalism program. This program  reemphasized  and  reinforced  the traditions and values that have been a part of our Navy for over 200 years. Since this program is just as important today, you should develop those traits of pride and professionalism described in the following paragraphs. LOYALTY This is a true, faithful, strong devotion to your country, commitments, or obligations. In a Navy environment, it also includes devotion to your superiors and subordinates. While you may be willing, even eager, to extend loyalty within your organization, you must continuously strive to keep the loyalty of others. You can do this by showing loyalty to the command and your subordinates. DEVOTION TO DUTY This is dedication to your job. You must at all times do your job to the best of your ability and place duty above self. Refusal to do so increases the burden of others. PROFESSIONAL  KNOWLEDGE At  this  point  in  your  career,  professional knowledge consists of more than just technical knowledge; it also consists of job know-how. You will increase this job know-how with experience and by being open-minded to new ideas and the suggestions of others. SELF-CONFIDENCE This means you feel sure of your ability, judgment, power,   and  decisions.  Professional knowledge is meaningless without the confidence to use it. INITIATIVE AND INGENUITY You need these qualities to help you develop your abilities to the fullest. Initiative is an introductory act leading to an action. Ingenuity is a skill or cleverness in devising or combining ways to get the job done. Opportunities for initiative and ingenuity often arise, but we fail to take advantage of them. COURAGE This is the mental or moral strength that enables you to meet danger, stand up for your beliefs, be honest, and admit mistakes. 6-7
