I have a direct who is a High-C. She is conscientious, hard-working, perfectionist and sometimes stubborn. We have a bi-weekly compliance meeting where I have asked her to take the minutes. She does not like doing it, but does it. However I always have to remind her, she does not let me know where she is and the deadline I set for her does not seem to matter to her. I know this is all typical High-C behavior.
I have been managing it as best I could, but last week she did not get the minutes done before the meeting. My boss also attends this meeting, the minutes are discussed and stored online. I always ask for the draft at least 1 day before the meeting so I have time to review them and leave enough time to get send them round to everyone to review before the meeting. In my one-on-one with her, I addressed this with her, suggesting that if she is going to miss a deadline she needs to let me know so we can discuss it and if necessary someone else could take over the task for the given week.
She told me that she found this offensive and said I was being childish. She does not think that there is any need to have deadlines as she knows that she has to do it. She also does not think that letting me know she will miss a deadline is important. She got so worked up we had to end the meeting.
My question is, how can I persuade her that deadlines do matter, that I do need to know about it if she will miss a deadline and that I am not being unprofessional by asking her to stick to deadlines and communicate with me about it?
I look forward to any advice you can give me.
