Only ask about problems / impediments "during" the week; report "progress" at the "end of the week".

Most problems are caused by not enough partitioning (i.e. tasks requiring more than 4 man-days); but expecting a "deliverable" EVERY DAY is ridiculous.

I always gave people a week to complete a task or two; and the next week to fix it in case there was an actual problem and get back on schedule. Never failed. And involving folks in the estimating process usually drives the whole process to a successful conclusion because it was "their" estimate (no matter how ambitious it might have been).

There comes a time when one deals with the peanut gallery and takes ownership of the project (if one has the confidence and cares enough).
