    I didn't remember your mentioning that missed deadlines were your concern as much as that his efforts weren't helpful to your team goals.

    Yep. This is a great opportunity to practice turning someone around, if you want to put in the effort. It seems that so far, you don't think he's adding value to the team, so it's no loss if he...

    We have a unique position and unique support for our efforts.

    Plus, at the end of the day, our ROLE is to enable others to get what they need. When you keep your eye on the long goal -- educated,...

    It was some time in high school that I realized having a successful veterinary practice is less about skill with animal health more about skill dealing with people. After all, they're the ones who...

    The dogs do get out of kennels for supervised group play and regular short potty breaks, every day, I think.

    It seems to me that consistency in handling is critical because of the variety of...

    Ask yourself "what is the most important thing?" ... You clearly identified it: I'm concerned it will affect the teams goals.

    It doesn't matter if he thinks he "won", even if he does a big "I...

    I have no supportive coloring advice.

    I gave up last fall and am nearly all grown out. I couldn't be happier.

    I think happy gets me laid more than hair color.

    My vague idea of a schoolmaster includes a requirement that the horse be confirmed at (at least) 3rd level and otherwise is like yours, netg, in doing what I ask for not what I hoped for.

    Not being very attached to the remains, this was the option I chose for all my cats. Compared to several hundred dollars, the $65 cost left me a fair chunk of change to help other cats (and dogs).

    I would fill out the paperwork (etc) for a Dobe rescue organization and see what the results are. If your home isn't accepted, it's not like the information is going to affect your employment status...

    Timely for me ... and how you proceed depends a lot on your expectations and (as someone else said) what "less than ideal" means. My horse spent a year recovering from an injury and I had moved her...

    I take leftovers to work for lunch and have also learned to cut back on buying.

    I think very fondly of "Bluebell" the mini I had in North Yorkshire.
