I joined my current work team in the spring. I had an immediate connection to everyone but over time I have been struggling with one in particular. She talks a lot, usually about herself and her many accomplishments. She appears to be wandering around a lot and even leaves her desk to come to mine, to tell me something, even though she could have sent an email. She is always saying that she is swamped with work but will complete tasks that are either not her responsibility or unnecessary.
I am now taking over some of her past responsibilities and she is not being a team player. Last week we had a meeting to go over the game plan because we wanted to streamline the process, going forward, and she immediately continued on with the old process. When we met again to discuss it further, she seemed focused only on completing the work that she felt needed to be done vs what we have discussed for the new process. Both meetings to discuss the project and the direction we wanted to go in were with the boss present. The boss and I are on the same page and my boss tried to explain it in different terms for easier understanding.
How do I get my co-worker to get with the program? WTF in Guelph
