Downgrade training advice

Unfortunately many pilots at our outfit are being downgraded from left to right seat, many in the same type.

Does anybody have any experience with this from a trainer point of view? Itís a sheite sandwich for sure. How does one approach this both professionally and with empathy? Iím not asking about the technical but the mental aspect. For those of you who went through downgrade training what helped you get through it?

A lot of us would just gut it out and do our job. I did when it happened to me after 9-11. I imagine however, some will not and those are the ones I have to figure out how to reach.

If you don’t think too highly of yourself, nor hold low esteem for others, it’s a piece of cake. You can still learn something and contribute something. In 2 airlines, I could be in the left seat and the right seat within the same week. On the L100, bounce between all 3 seats. Crew and scheduling anomalies. Can’t ever take it personally. Do your job to your best ability whatever seat you are in.
