Do we need a more responsive mechanism to pull a CO that's dick ? Yes. That's that the point here.
We need a culture change in the CAF. And if part that is putting the COs in with common gentry so be it. I love having the Swain in the mess. You get to ask questions and get deeper answers to things. We also manage to respect their position and given them a breather when they need it. It's common that in C&POs it's an open space speak your mind, it's what makes the place sacred.
I think this could be an opportunity for JOs and HODs to have the same experience and a better relationship with their COs.
Wanna know when you have a bad CO ? Find out how often they were invited to C&POs for a meal. My last one was never given the invite. Not once.
