Ask Savvy: How Do I Get My Co-Worker to Respond Faster?

This reader posted in our Ask Savvy group saying that her co-worker takes a long to to respond to her emails. Any suggestions on how she should deal with the situation?

Have you guys ever dealt with someone (professionally) that won't email you back—or takes a really long time? I am looking for an appropriate way to get a faster response from this person that I work with. I just don't get people sometimes! Has this ever happened to you? What is the best way to handle this? I am working closely with this person, so I don't want to be rude or annoying! Grrr!

Ask anything budget-, etiquette-, or planning-related — well, almost anything — by posting your questions in the Ask Savvy group, and I'll find the right expert to help you out.
