I inherited a poor performer (yes I listened to all of those casts!) who I co-manage with another manager. This is the person's third role since working at this company because my manager is a high I high S and has admitted that he is a "softie."
We have been nearing the end of 6 weeks of late-stage coaching. The 2 months before that involved one-on-ones (actually, 2 on ones) and feedback.
Now senior management wants to put them back in my department to fill an open position I have that I wanted to use to fill with a star (I have listened to all the hiring casts -- still hoping for more of them though!).
In any case, I am furious! Any suggestions? I'm a new manager and this poor performer has been so time consuming and is not helping the organization not to mention challenging for me as a new manager.
