PURPOSE OF COUNSELING
Promotion/developmental counseling on soldier competencies, skills, knowledge, and attitudes (SKAs) observed for 90 days. SPC Doe is not being recommended for the next higher grade. He has never been seen to take down the EEIs for his assigned tasks and has a tendency to not be straightforward in answering questions from his superiors. He did not complete several details by the deadline given, and these details had to be given to another section. On two details that he did complete, he did not plan for water resupply during the last field problem, causing unnecessary hardship for his men.
KEY POINTS OF DISCUSSION
SPC Doe's overall performance has been marginal. Discussed SPC Doe's problems in receiving and interpreting information from his superiors. His failure to copy down EEIs causes information to have to be repeated to him often. His tendency to beat around the bush when questioned about a detail's status shows a weakness in the "be honest and courageous" attitude. His failure to complete details on time shows a weakness in his understanding of the backward planning process. That some of his assigned tasks had to be passed to others shows a weakness in his attitude of "accomplish the mission".
PLAN OF ACTION
SPC Doe will review TC 22-6 and familiarize himself with the SKAs required by grade, specifically communication, planning, honesty and courage, and accomplishing the mission. He will always carry pen and paper so that he may immediately copy down EEIs from superiors. SPC Doe will, from now on, be more direct, clear, and concise in his answers to questions from superiors.
SPC DOE will not be recommended for promotion to the next higher grade until he has shown improvement.
