trials of a manageress

Today was just one of those days. 

Very Highly Paid team member is not performing and causing a whole lot of annoyance and frustration all over the place. She’s clearly out of her depth entirely and I’m going to have to have a Difficult conversation and step in and help/guide (likely just take over the work). 

You might remember that this is the person who reports to me and is paid approximately 1/3 more than I am.

The difficulty is that she is one of the nicest people I’ve met and even gently performance managing her feels rather like punching a puppy. As it is I’ve already had to parachute KingLouis in to take over half of what she was originally employed to do.
