There are six major objectives to accomplish during the counseling session:

a. Identify the memberís important strengths and shortcomings. A fair, accurate, and realistic assessment of the memberís performance is crucial to the counseling process.

b. Address specific performance problems, concentrating on ways to develop growth in these areas. Also address the memberís strengths and encourage their further development. Point out ways to improve, but do not dwell on unimportant faults in the belief that criticism is essential to counseling.

c. Present a performance growth plan, if appropriate. Be sure that goals are challenging but realistic and attainable for the member.

d. Ensure members have a clear understanding and acknowledge their performance during the review period.
