“My administrative assistant has worked here for a little over a year. She is personable with good clerical skills. She’s a good clerical worker, but she never really rises above that position. She never has an original idea for organizing the office. It’s as if she is waiting on me for every idea. And when I give her a suggestion, she will do it for a week or two but then stop doing it. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I thought an admin would be more self-motivated and focused on assisting me. I asked her to please organize the office when she arrives in the morning. I'm not talking about vacuuming the rugs and washing windows. I just want her to have an idea of what is piling up in the office, and what is important and what is junk. She feels that this is treating her like a maid. Any advice?” — Frustrated Boss
