Dealing with difficult people is not an easy task.
Procrastinators are afraid of making decisions because they may be wrong. Fear of failure causes a person to be stuck unless someone intervenes. They will put off making decisions until either the last minute or the deadline is due. This causes poor management skills. It may have something to do with the persons past or they may just want attention. Procrastinators need help with better work habits. Some need help overcoming their fear of failure. Working on a team with someone like this is frustrating because you must be sure to give them a false deadline in order to get them to be on time with their part of the work.
