Asking for a friend of course. But this friend isn't having trouble with his actual work, but the boss is making a huge deal about the detailed organization *just in case* someone has to find something... (which they rarely do, and if they do, they can *ask* instead of just grabbing stuff)
The assumption that is being made - because this guy isn't doing exactly what he is told (not that he is actually being told *exactly* what to do... other than "it needs to be BETTER!") - is that he just doesn't like taking orders from women.
Which, IMO (and my friend's), is a *really* huge jump in logic to be making. Perhaps you need to know more about managing different sorts of people, rather than to just assume that someone is being sexist.
Anyway - any advice that I can give that guy?
Any advice I can give to those who haven't voted yet? Other than "be prepared to say goodbye to your favorites, because they *need* your support... http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1019025.html
