"I agree that a leader recognizes his faults and works to eliminate them in himself and his team.  Note I asked if she was worth keeping.  If the person is a good worker, an assent to the team, you talk to them to figure out what  is…"

Portnoy replied to Xenias Latin's discussion New Leadership Question
"True, and he might need to fire her as a lost cause at this point. Firing is extremely easy and only resolves the immediate problem of his "authority" being questioned. I am addressing this from his last question on becoming a leader and…"

"Disagreement and yelling at a superior in the lunch room are two very different things.  I don't see how an employee like that makes the team stronger. JB"

"I'm still disagreeing with everyone, the OP is asking about leadership. A leader doesn't expect respect, a leader earns it. A leader just doesn't fire everyone who disagrees, the leader embraces disagreement and uses it to create a…"

Jack Bauer replied to Xenias Latin's discussion New Leadership Question
"Do you have the power to fire her?  She's insubordinate, obnoxious, presumptuous, insensitive, and lazy.  Sounds like way more trouble than she's worth.  I'd be less worried about her than about her effect on everybody…"

Kit the Odd replied to Xenias Latin's discussion New Leadership Question
"I agree that this sounds more like a management issue than a leadership issue.  I don't really have any good suggestions for management training books. As for leadership, look up the US Army leadership manuals.  ADP 6-22 and ADRP…"

"One question. Do you folks "punch the clock?"  If not, and her job performance is satisfactory, you are SOL, because her late in, early out behavior is off the table.  "

Charles Dodd replied to Xenias Latin's discussion New Leadership Question
"Good point. Disciplining staff is perhaps more of a "management" issue rather than a leadership issue. As for some books on the subject that Xenias might purchase, I checked around under "management books" at Amazon. (One can…"

Todd McFarland replied to Xenias Latin's discussion New Leadership Question
"This is not about leadership.  This woman is doesn't respect you and isn't going to follow you.  (Leadership is not about rank.) If this person reports to you, start by talking it through with your HR rep.  Then, assuming…"
