Before you decide to call it quits, it's helpful to ask yourself if you've done everything you could have to make it a success. Have you been clear about your expectations? Have you given the other person the space to do something with your feedback?

And now you might be thinking, "Well, those aren't the kind of people we want to see in our organization either," but you might also ask yourself if you've helped them enough to meet your expectations. And let's face it, wouldn't you rather jump into an azure sea than into the local ditch?
