I’m done with him!

April 9th, 2011 · No Comments

Julie hates to work with Adam.

They are the polar opposite of each other. Julie is outgoing, passionate, aggressive, go-getter, detailed oriented, and widely popular. Adam is introverted, insightful, absent minded, and socially awkward.

Julie is a star in the company, and her career has been progressing very well.

Adam is competent, but he tended to rob people the wrong people because of his social awkwardness. He is also not very detailed oriented – he is very good at getting 80% of a project done, but he has trouble to finish the project with highest quality.

There has been ongoing tension between Julie and Adam for a long time.

Finally, Julie couldn’t take it any more. She walked into her manager’s office and said “I’m done with that guy! I cannot work with him any more!” She was dead serious.

If you’re Julie’s manager, what would you do? What would you say to Julie?

I’ll write about my perspective on my next post. It might surprise you. 🙂
