Corrective Training

Here is a list of everything we have published about Corrective Training

What can I do if my leader used corrective training in an abusive or punishing manner?

CSM, here is the deal. One of my Soldiers is deployed. She told me that she was given a counseling statement because she violated a direct order of not wearing her full PPE while she worked at her post. However neither she or her NCOIC knew that she had to wear such gear. A leader comes by one day after 5 months and spotted her without any PPE. He gave her corrective training, in which the she has to stand in full battle rattle at the entrance to the BN TOC for an hour after shift, making it noticeable to all the Soldiers that she is being corrected. Is this appropriate use of Corrective Training? What can she do about it?.. Read the Answer»

How do I help a Soldier who just does not “get it” and cannot follow orders?

I have a Soldier who is quite frankly, a complete idiot. I know that may be harsh, but I have no other way to put it. Maybe "special' is more politically correct. However, this Soldier simply can't follow instruction, has no sense, and in general just does unbelievable things. I have done my best to address this. First I addressed his finances, because he has those all messed up. Then his lack of hygiene and cleanliness of his room. He is lost in most things I tell him to do. At 19 years old, he does not appear to have the ability to think for himself. I do my best to be clear with him, but I just don't know how long I can endure him. I honestly don't know how to deal with this guy. It's just one thing after another and counseling doesn't seem to help, formal or not. I don't see how an article will help him. I am tempted to just come down harder and harder, but maybe someone on here has a better option than that... Read the Answer»
