Quiet Confidence - Be calm and steady always. Do not let ego stand in the way of progress.
Creativity - Be a sparkplug. Always ask, "How can I do this better?"
Teamwork and Collaboration - Work together. No one of us is as smart as all of us thinking together.
Determination - Never, never, never give up!
Honesty and Integrity - Never violate the law or regulations. Tell the truth unflinchingly.
Admiral James Stavridis, Commander - U.S. Southern Command
