There was no reprimand here - he posed the question and asked advice. I gave advice. If he did not like the advice or my commentary, he could have felt free to disregard it all. Instead, he nuked his own post when it got a little uncomfortable for him. If he cannot take the words of others on an anonymous forum, it further lends to my questioning his whole perception of ‘his’ situation.

As I say, these opinions are my own, YMMV.

And when I address a cadet here that way I am told by other users "Praise in Public, Reprimand Privately." SZometimes any such message has been deleted by admins.

Cadetter:

Point two - excellent.

Point one - my comment was a leadership lesson in itself. Sometimes that will be the kind of answer you have to deal with, without the follow-on commentary received here.

Step 1. Locate the position checklist for the job at hand. If such a checklist does not exist, create one.
Step 2. Work with the cadet on identifying the best ways to accomplish the tasks.
Step 3. Profit.

I think that Capmonkey is asking for advice on how to politely fill in the gaps, so to speak, without butting in. He/she is a C/Maj and likely doesn't need instructions on how to butt out of things. CAP is a leadership laboratory - if they want to improve the experience for subordinates, IMO "suck it up" and answers of the ilk are remarkably useless.

You can always suggest improvements, tips, etc. Just don't jump into doing the other cadet's position.

How could you possibly know all of that? This Cadet surely was appointed by a competent authority... do you claim to know more than that authority?

Settle down and just do your job and let others do theirs.

YMMV

Suck it up and make a learning opportunity out of it.

Hey, guys!
     This question came about in a group of officers I was talking with. What would ya'll do?


 You have been appointed to a position reporting to a cadet from another wing. Although he out ranks you, you quickly come to the conclusion that this cadet has been appointed to a position he is not ready for and you have skills that he lacks. What is the best course of action?

Thanks for the help,
Capmonkey
