The U.S. Navy has introduced a leader development framework implementation plan that would offer guidance on how the military branch should help its leaders build character and achieve operational excellence.
The framework titled “A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority” was designed with a focus on strengthening and broadening leadership development programs across the Navy, the service branch said Friday.
The Naval War College will partner with the Naval Leadership and Ethics Center to support community leads that have been listed in a Navadmin 060/17 message as well as create a Navy-wide leader development strategy that reaches beyond the major command level.
“We must continue to train our Sailors to be leaders who think clearly, learn rapidly and exemplify character and integrity,” said Vice Adm. Robert Burke, chief of naval personnel.
Navy’s Leader Development Continuum Council, led by the NWC president, also plans to hold monthly meetings to discuss best practices and feedback on proposed leadership development strategies and programs.
