My director and I will be sitting down with her at the end of this week to go over the training list to make sure I've covered everything.
Next week I will sit back and let her do everything herself and will make corrections as necessary. She's taken pretty good notes, so I hope she'll work out.
I've decided not to say anything unless a problem arises.
This sounds like a good plan. Twelve years is a long time, and I agree it also depends on which twelve years--I work with a lot of college-student interns and I can definitely see how someone who was kind of flaky at 20 would hopefully mature by 32. I really hope I wouldn't be judged on what I was like 12 years ago!
And, with this plan, the nice thing is, you don't have
to ever say, "She was like this 12 years ago." If she messes up, you'll be able to say, "Boss, she and I went over this, you double-checked, I watched her do it correctly. I don't know what more I could have done."
