    This is one of the toughest jobs I've EVER had.

    I truly empathize with other managers that have to deal with issues of respect for both management and employees. It's not easy when one faces the black and/or white circumstances. Finding the shade of gray to help all areas improve and build is a TASK!!!

    I've finally made a decision.

    I'm letting the assistant go. There's no need to discredit anymore. I'm at peace with how to handle the situation and myself. It's for the best.

    So, I've lessened a load on an assistant.

    She has 2yrs under her belt. My most recent hire is out-performing her BIG TIME!! However the senior has ADHD..... I'm blaming myself for putting so much responsibility on her. When I was put into my position, I had no idea she had this condition. I was aware of her therapy...
