David, your boss, shares with you his experiences with his fresh administrative assistant. He states, "You know Abdul, my administrative assistant, who joined me a few months ago. He is an exchange worker from our office in Saudi Arabia. Though he knows he is working for me, he has shown much little cooperation. The other day, I had a conversation with him regarding his job explanation, but he smiled all the time and gave this speech regarding how happy he is to be here. He is not interested in the tasks assigned to him and fails to perform each time. Just yesterday, he was assumed to send out our monthly report to the headquarters, but when I checked with him in the evening, he had not even started working on it. I do not know what to do with him."
