46:00 Quora Question and Answer Q: As a supervisor or boss, how do you handle a worker who has issues at work? A: What some organizations have done is to bring in an external mentor to work with the employee to initiate behavioral changes for the positive. In all the situations that I have been involved in we have been successful in each and every one. In some cases, the issues were personal which translated into work place behavior challenges. In other situations, it was all about providing tools to assist in a positive behavior going forward. One thing to keep in mind is that it is not always the worker who needs guidance but it could also be the supervisor or boss.
