There is a woman at work I really like as a person, problem is she is a horrible worker. Today I spent a great deal of my time cleaning up her messes and then checking her work to make sure there were not more glaring errors. So frustrating. I go and talk to her about her work issues on an almost daily basis, I gently suggest better ways she can organize herself and be more efficient. I point out errors (not every single one) and ensure she does know how to do the work. She's scatterbrained, starts one thing, then gets distracted and the end result is a bunch of work done wrong, half done and paperwork missing. Sigh. I feel like such a bad guy today because I took one of her mistakes to my boss. I just was so beyond tired of constantly cleaning up her messes. She obviously needs more supersvision and direction to get through the day.
I hate the fact that she's been getting upset with me. I like her and think she's a very nice person but I need to get my job done efficiently and can't be the clean up crew forever.
How do you handle situations like this?
