Joe Did What?!

Joe Did What?!

This case study is provided to spark and support a professional conversation among officers and senior NCOs about what to do when Soldiers do dumb things. Participants are encouraged to share (in a non-attributional way) particularly egregious examples of this phenomenon and how they responded. Participants discuss expectations of conduct in the unit and why certain problems occur. Participants reflect on their obligations and responses to misconduct as leaders.


  • Two videos from an XO in a mechanized infantry company, who discusses some crazy things he’s seen Soldiers do, and then talks about leader responsibilities when those things happen.
  • Leader Guide
