The Guardian Ideal is the Space Force’s foundational document outlining the service’s boundary-pushing, innovative approach to talent management, from accession to development, and it combines aspirations with actions and milestones.
“At the heart of the Guardian Ideal is the commitment between the leader and the led, founded upon our core values of Character, Connection, Commitment, and Courage,” Raymond said. “These values guide who we are and how we conduct our mission. They will unite and sustain us as we grow together as one interconnected force.”
Raymond said he’s most proud of the explicit focus on inclusion in the Space Force’s culture from the very beginning and how the team-centric model outlined in the Guardian Ideal encourages cooperation over competition.
