The Bottom Line: The ratee joined the Air Force for specific reasons, with specific expectations in mind.  It’s your responsibility to understand those expectations and ensure they are being met, within reason.  Don’t wait for a scheduled feedback session to discuss career expectations…by then it may be too late.  Encourage the ratee to constantly think about why they joined the Air Force.  Encourage them to talk with you if their expectations aren’t being met.  In many cases, you simply need to get them re-focused on why they joined the Air Force in the first place!
