That might have been the case once.Hypothetical Scenario:- A private soldier witnesses a SNCO bollocking a lower rank, not talking, shouting, nose to nose. personal unsavory attributes are highlighted, as is his parentage, country of origin, skin tone and scruffy appearance.
The witness has two options. Approach his own troop sergeant, possibly his troop officer, or ignore it, and accept that this is part and parcel of military life. what ever he does, once word filters down through the SNCO's mess, that he has grassed, his life will be made extremely uncomfortable, extra duties, shit jobs, fatigues, fire piquet, that is the nature of the beast, and has been for century's. Or he can turn a blind eye, and soldier on. There is no middle ground.
I don't know if that's true, but it would be very difficult, especially if the CO was a "chosen one" and has a VSO mentor. I have seen attempts to complain formally fall flat on their face before, and the climate assessment is toothless.It's very much the case now. There is simply no way to report toxic leaders without career ending consequences.
That might have been the case once.
Not so much any more.
Er, do you have her telephone and e-mail address? A picture would be nice but not essential. Asking for a friend of course.t gets dodgy though when the top HR director [female] for the bank gets shit faced and latches on to a very junior male HR assistant. She more or less dragged him to her room and raped him. She moved on.
