I am fairly new in a team leader position and would appreciate some help with this. One of my soldiers is eligible to go to the promotion board. He is a good soldier and there is nothing in his performance that would prevent me from recommending him, but he has told me that he does not wish to go. I am not going to force him to, especially since he has less than six months left in the Army. My question is this: How should I go about his Non-Rec counseling? I am not sure how to phrase it.

Why make it complicated....."You have expressed your desire to not attend the next promition board. Given this lack of motivation to lead Soldiers...."

It's not the idea that there isn't anything preventing him from going to the promo board...

For future soldiers or other soldiers on your team, your thought should be this: Is he/she expressing a desire to go? Have they shown any leadership capabilities? Are they driven? Do they want to grow? Etc etc etc...

Sure, a soldier may be eligible to go to a board, meeting TIS/TIG requirements, but it is up to you as their first line supervisor to ensure they will be able to compete, compete well and represent the NCO corps well. Being able to lead soldiers, complete the missin, whether they're cooks or infantry, is rather important.

Its like this: I'm currently putting my warrant packet in. One question that pops up is this: "Am I going to be a valuable asset to the medical command, public health command and the warrant officer corps?"

The same thought process should apply. Will they be an asset to the NCO Corp?
