Initial Counseling

The initial counseling is very important in the development of all Junior Soldiers because this is the time for the supervisor to give his subordinates their job description and expectations of future work performance. The initial counseling statement should be given to the newly assigned Soldiers within the first 30 days and list all duty appointments, duty description, goals and expectations. During the initial counseling session, you should allow the Soldier to speak freely and voice any questions or pending issues that can potentially affect the Soldier’s morale or job performance.
