Question: How do I best use the trinity with clients and subcontractors.
My company is the prime contractor on a multi-year contract with subcontractors. In my role I am a project manager assigned to lead a project with a client counterpart and subcontractors.
My client counterpart was assigned to me by her supervisor and in a private meeting I was asked to help the person develop. My counterpart’s supervisor see the person as being promoted too soon and not mature. I working with the person in the last 3 months I agree. They have failed to execute tasks or understand the purpose of the project. How do I best coach my client counterpart?
I have multiple subcontractors matrixed to me for the project. I would like to develop them to take on more responsibility and be accountable for the line of operation they are assigned. Thus far I have been wary of O3s since they are a sub.
