RMKS/1. Reference (a) is a call for every Sailor, active and reserve, and
civilian to place a positive focus on demonstrating Signature Behaviors to
drive a Culture of Excellence (COE), where Sailors are included, respected
and empowered. The Cultural Champion Network (CCN) is a driver in achieving
an enduring COE. In order to achieve this goal this NAVADMIN introduces the
term *Cultural Champion,* and the concept of the CCN and directs its
implementation in accordance with reference (b). Our goal in this effort is
to develop an environment in which all Sailors:
a. Are trained and motivated to navigate life events effectively.
b. Assist their Shipmates through periods of stress or difficulty.
c. Are attentive to their personal well-being and feel confident seeking
help from available resources to proactively promote their long-term health.
2. Reference (b) defines the CCN as an inter-disciplinary network,
maintained by the command triad, designed to create an integrated Sailor
support system at each command supported by leaders, partners, processes and
a. The role of the CCN is to:
(1) Allow leaders to *connect the dots* on issues impacting a
Sailor*s overall fitness (psychological, spiritual, physical and emotional).
(2) Clearly identify resources that are needed to ensure resilience
while fostering toughness and connectedness.
(3) Improve current operating procedures for Sailor support systems
(4) Drive commands towards unit mission readiness and a stronger
foundation for the future by promoting positive behaviors and healthy norms
at all levels.
3. Through the CCN, the command triad will implement the following in
accordance with references (b) through (g):
a. Ensure every member of the CRT completes the Basic Primary Prevention
and Human Factors Process (HFP) online training available at
https://erau.edu/navy-crt-training. To register for training, members must
enter code 8LKE79.
b. Ensure Command Resilience Team Human Factors Councils
(CRTHFCs) are designed to review the human factors that impact the wellness
of individuals within the command and identify primary prevention efforts to
reduce relevant risk(s). CRTHFC training is located on the COE Webpage (see
paragraph 6) and will be available on 31 December 2020. CRTHFC mandatory
members identified in reference (b) shall additionally complete the
Intermediate Primary Prevention and HFP online training available at
https://erau.edu/navy-crt- training. The training will be available on 31
January 2021. Basic Primary Prevention and HFP online training is a
prerequisite for the intermediate training.
c. Ensure deckplate leadership engagement with CRT members to provide
commanders with a better understanding of issues impacting Sailor resilience,
implement positive measures to promote Sailor well-being, build resilience
and make Sailors and commands more combat ready.
4. Similar processes may be already conducted in the Fleet (e.g., Force
Preservation Councils or SUBFOR*s TOBI Program) that meet the goals and
intent identified herein. Commands already utilizing these existing non-
punitive processes are encouraged to continue to do so and leverage the tools
provided within reference (b) to enhance functions.
5. The 21ST Century Sailor Office (OPNAV N17) will incorporate CCN
requirements across OPNAV N17 programs and policies in support of COE
initiatives. Command inspections to ensure all commands execute the
requirements of this NAVADMIN will be conducted by Command Climate
Specialists and the Navy Inspector General. The provisions of this NAVADMIN
and Fleet best-practices for executing CRTs and CRTHFCs identified during
command inspections will be incorporated into a forthcoming CCN instruction
scheduled for release in 2021. The provisions of this NAVADMIN must be fully
implemented at each command no later than 1 March 2021.
