Q I have an employee who procrastinates with every assignment. Then he rushes to finish. It drives me crazy because I’m never sure he’ll get it done. So far, he’s never missed a deadline. But I hate being put through this!

A That’s your problem. If you micromanage your employee and lecture him about procrastinating, he probably won’t change—and may grow to resent you. Focus on the result: If it’s submitted to you by the due date and it’s excellent, lighten up. For peace of mind, you may want to set his deadline a few days before the real deadline.
