The Center for Army Leadership CAL developed junior enlisted counseling tools which included a card and companion video. The card includes areas that make up the core responsibilities of junior enlisted Soldiers and questions for the counselor to consider when thinking about a Soldiers performance. A video provides information on how to counsel as well as motivational rationale for counseling. Focus groups were conducted to assess the tools. The first phase of focus groups led to favorable assessments of the card and unfavorable reactions to the companion video. During the second phase, Noncommissioned officers NCOs at 4th ID SB were briefed on the purpose and use of the card and were encouraged to try out the tool. After several months a second round of focus groups were conducted with NCOs in the brigade and feedback obtained. NCOs reported that the card would be useful for the preparation and conduct of performance counseling.
