Yeah I am good at solving them. Like I said: warning, then dismissal. Only trouble comes when I get too nice and don't want to fire them because y'know, as a person, I like them. I'm not quite as merciless as the ENTJ's and sometimes I let my nice side get the better of me. I soon come to my senses thoughThe problems you talk about are presicely the things you need to get good at solving, to be a good leader.
Yeah I have done in the past. But I prefer not to - like I say I'm a bit of a philanthropist and I've a weakness for giving people a chance who wouldn't otherwise get one. Sometimes it pays off and you get a good colleague for years, other times it doesn't and you have to fire someone. It's just the way it is - doesn't mean I have to enjoy the unpleasant parts though, and the fact I don't, and that I sometimes feel a bit betrayed on a personal level when someone I've stuck my neck out for throws it in my face by taking the piss, doesn't mean I'm not a good leaderEDIT:If you don't want to lead but would rather just manage... have you thought about getting contract workers?
