- Invite the person to explain his or her expectations for the project. Compare that vision with yours. In many cases, this is where the problem lies.
- Formulate a plan together that will yield better results. If the person can’t help in that process, maybe he or she is the wrong person for the job. But in most cases, you’ll jointly decide on measures that will lead to better results.
