Angry How do you work with women managers who whine?

I'm a director of a large mental health program, and I supervise other managers. Our agency does very intensive work, and I'm really being challenged right now with a new manager who doesn't understand the nature of the intensity of the work. She allows her staff to get around her, and whines about the workloads and expectations of the staff. I've provided training, shadowed with her and given supportive feedback, made expectations clear, etc. I know my frustration is coming out as irritability, which isn't good for anyone. I feel like Sisyphus right now.
