Determine the source of the tension.

Make sure you’re clear about what you’re looking for.

Help from the beginning

  • Work with them to prioritize the tasks; brainstorm ideas for a new direction; and go over the smaller details.

  • Request regular reports on what they planned to achieve and what they’ve completed.
  • Do some of the work with them in a meeting.
  • Team them up with colleagues.
