Assignment Task

Case Study

Karen has been an employee of the organization where you work for about 8 months. You are her supervisor. Karen`s attendance at supervision has been spasmodic. She has missed the last 2 supervision sessions which normally occur on a fortnightly basis. When questioned about her non-attendance Karen states that she has been `too busy` to attend supervision. You note during the conversation that Karen appears stressed, looks tired, and appears to have lost weight. You are now waiting for Karen to attend your scheduled supervision session. If she fails to attend this session it will be the third session in 6 weeks that she has missed. She is already 15 minutes late. At the end of 15 minutes, you telephone Karen. She has forgotten the time and says she cannot make it because she is on a visit to another organization and is an hour`s drive from your office. You reschedule another supervision time. You tell Karen that she must attend supervision at the allocated time and, she has agreed to attend. What will you do and how will you respond to Karen in this next supervision session?
