How do I make my Soldiers part of the counseling process?

GREAT QUESTION!

First FM 6-22, ATP 6-22.1, and ADP/ADRP 6-22 provide some great information on the subject.  Here are two methods I used to include my Soldiers in the counseling and evaluation process.

First, I always carried a notebook with me.  I dedicated one page of my notebook to each Soldier.  I would annotate daily items that occurred: What they did well, What they did wrong, Things they did to help the team, When they are recognized for something by members of the chain of command.  I then used this information to develop my monthly and quarterly counseling statements.
