Situation At Work

Post by astra on Wed Jan 22, 2014 4:51 pm

Hi everyone,
I would like to ask you for an advice for a situation at work. I have a new co-worker who has been there for about 6 months. I am her supervisor. The problem is she is overstepping her boundaries every once in a while, stirs things up and I am left dealing with situations.
Today was one of these situations. I had to tell her (using all the kindness I was capable of) to not do it. I did not get through to her at all. She got even pushier.
I am not sure how to let her know that she is overstepping her boundaries without being totally blunt. I know she has some issues with needing to always be right and proving it to everyone.
We already have a huge problem with a very mean boss (owner) and I don't want to add to the tension. But I do need to resolve it somehow. Doing it nicely is just not working. She won't back off. I don't want to "pet" her problem, but at the same time I'd like to built her up instead of tearing her down, but don't know how to do it.
I am pretty clueless as to what to do. Help, please ?!

I think you're right. I'll word it carefully and try to stay cool :-) but would have to tell her the way it is. Hopefully this will be enough.

Thank you!
