Talk to her about expectations and performance, and what you expect for the next two years. [ Reply | More ]

I have done this more than once. She agrees and does what I need for some time then either gets resentful or performance slips or both. When she does do avoid job she is irreplaceable and when I interview others I always compare to my nanny on good days and not on bad [ Reply | More ]

This is just part of being a boss. Employees have good days and bad days. It's up to you to remind her of your expectations when she starts to slip - not after she has slipped so far that you are frustrated and considering firing her. [ Reply | More ]

So when she has a bad day I assume she is just having a bad day but then somehow the bed day turns into worse etc. I don't know what triggers these declines in performance. I don't know what makes her resentful all I a sudden. We pay well, job has gotten easier over time. I don't know how to address it when I see that she is back to resentful and slacking. She always denies resentment and has a reason for all performance slips. For example she will say that kids didn't feel like going to playground or children really wanted cereal for dinner and so she didn't make dinner. [ Reply | More ]

I guess that's my fallback. Would prefer to give to kids who didn't get much halloween candy. [ Reply | More ]

I know you're trying to be nice, but giving halloween candy to a shelter after halloween is over, is basically, "here, have some leftovers that we didn't want, we couldn't be bothered to think about you and your kids on the actual holiday". It's kind of shabby. If the candy isn't halloween-branded, I'd hold on to it until TG and drop it at the shelter for their TG dinner. [ Reply | More ]

I take your point. And you are probably right at least in nyc. Was just going to take it to work, but then I thought there must be some little kids somewhere that don't get a lot of candy and would see this as a treat. Willing to make the extra effort to drop or send somewhere like that but don't know where. It's definitely Halloween candy. [ Reply | More ]

I'm OP - there are some amazing things coming from Millenials, and I love a diverse team. I'm open to feedback and take it, but have found many Millenials on our teams to be offended by feedback or coaching. Is there a specific angle that may work better with this generation, other than constant praise? [ Reply | More ]

Dear Gen X bosses, Please consider growing a sense of humor. Also, try to remember with more clarity and accuracy what you were like in your 20s, because we can tell you from experience that you weren't that great. Learn to embrace change, and just plain learn from the next generation, because we can tell you, again from experience, that the next generation has a lot to teach. A little humility goes a long way. Signed, the Baby Boomers who used to be your managers but have taken early retirement buy-outs and are now your consultants. [ Reply | More ]
