I have an individual on my team who in title is a Sr. person but I find in practice he requires allot of interaction and reassurance. I would consider him a high 'I' due to his ability to deal with people and lack of attention to detail (I am a high C and his manager). I find that whenever he encounters a frustrating situation, which in our company and role in IT Support is common, he has to discuss it with me. The discusssions typically involve him telling me about the frustrating interaction or issue rather than presenting any solutions. We sit in close proximity to each other so it is hard for me to avoid him. I find this frustrating becasue I feel that he is a Sr. level person on the team and should be able to handle all situtations with his clients without constant stroking by his manager. It has become a major distraction for me. I have brought it to his attention several times by stating my expecations and that this behavior does not set a good example for the team. What should I do next?
