NCO Found Guilty for Maltreatment of Subordinates

How can you avoid abusing your authority, position, and your subordinates? Ask yourself these questions?

  1. Would I allow my son, daughter, or loved one to be treated this way?
  2. Are my actions appropriate?
  3. Am I treating my subordinates the way I want to be treated?
  4. If a disinterested person saw me taking action would they see my action as professional or abusive?
  5. Would I be proud of my actions if a member of my family or spouse saw me taking these actions?
