The passive-aggressive type generally seethes with resentment and may subtlety undermine a unit or make the supervisor edgy.  Do you know these types and how do you deal with them?   Do you have them take classes on assertive,  not as punishment but to be their lives?

I recall having a medic that was the NCOIC of them when i was a security section leader in a HQ platoon. He made it very difficult to work with. I was the young buck SGT just out of the Regular Army. It got so bad I asked him to go outside and just hash it out by whoever is able to walk back in. He was very spastic and always would question anything you would do. Being peers made it very hard to work with. He even mentored a soldier to be like him which was horrible. We both moved on. I got promoted and now commissioned. He was deployed and lost his position due to job performance. It solved itself out. I am glad he was not in charge of other medics if the "$#!%" hit the fan.

I dealt with a Soldier like this who was assigned to me.  What I learned about him was that he had very bad anger management issues.  Best way I dealt with him was with a head-on approach.  If he got out of line, then corrective measures were swift and decisive. 

I was able to get him to go talk to an anger management specialist but he did not go back.  All the advice I gave him to help him succeed, I can only hope he utilizes it so that he doesn't allow his attitudes, mannerisms and behaviors to derail a career he has in store for himself.
