Core Values Project
Premise: Each Core Value is
really a form of shorthand for
many other values.
Tasks:
1. Provide a well-rounded, multifaceted definition for your
assigned Core Value by
identifying at least 4 moral
concepts embedded in the Value.
2. Identify 4 practical ways a
squadron staff officer can
demonstrate your assigned Core
Value.
Core Values: Integrity First
Honesty: the habit of telling the truth
Moral Courage: the willingness to do
what is right, even if it’s not easy
Responsibility: acknowledge your duty
and take responsibility for success or
failure
Openness: being transparent in your
motives and actions
Honor: Showing integrity in and out of
uniform; integrity is not something that
can be turned “on” or “off.”
Analysis of the Core Values is based on USAF Doctrine Document 1-1
Core Values: Volunteer Service
Altruism: when your actions stem
from a desire to help others; the
difference between “giving” and
“taking”
Selflessness: seeing “service” as the
act of putting someone else’s needs
ahead of your own
Good Citizenship: making a
contribution to the general welfare of
the community
Fun: volunteerism takes effort, but it is
not supposed to be a dreaded chore
Core Values: Excellence in All We Do
Professional Development:
participating in training programs and
learning how to contribute more
Teamwork: working together and
recognizing that teams accomplish more
than individuals
Efficiency: recognizing that budgets and
equipment are not limitless; making do with
what we have
Big Picture Vision: knowing how your
role affects the team and CAP as a whole;
acting in a way that supports the overall
mission
Core Values: Respect
Loyalty: Supporting the leader; not trying to undercut their authority
Politeness & Tact: Treating others as you would want to be treated
Good Faith: Giving the other person the benefit of the doubt
Humility: Recognizing you are human; not boasting about rank or position
Tolerance: Recognizing individual rights and differences
