Karen,

 

I found your last two newsletters on writing a written warning very helpful. Would you clarify when it’s appropriate to use a written warning vs. giving a verbal warning?

Karen,

 

I enjoyed your newsletter on being a control freak*.  Would you consider doing one on perfectionists (of which I am one) and needing to let go of things at a certain point?

Someone recently told me that I’m a control-freak. I don’t want to be one. Please help!

Dear Karen,

 

I have an employee who does tasks for both me and another person in the company. Lately both of us have been dissatisfied with her performance. Frequently, I think that she is working on a project for me and later find out it has not been started. My coworker has been having similar issues. What can we do?

I have an incredible staff. They are bright, ethical, and hard working. My biggest challenge is to keep the excitement up and the momentum rolling. Can you give me some ideas?

Karen,

 

The temptation of social media, internet, and texting limits the productivity of some people. How can I keep people centered and concentrating on their work and not their personal matters?

Karen,

 

I know the person I would like to hire but I need to check references. What kinds of questions would be helpful to ask when checking references?
