Has anyone told you, either your boss or another leadership position, to find your own work?

I've been in this company for around 2 years now. From the very beginning till now, I've been told to "find my own work." And for around 2 years now, that's what I've been doing. Rarely, like maybe once a month, my boss would give me a task. Otherwise, I've been trying to figure this out on my own. I understand many companies like their employees to be initiative but during the 2 years here it has been more of ignorance than initiative.
Did anyone else have experience like this? Is this the norm and I'm not realizing it?

My heart is so conflicted as I've had a tempestuous relationship with a direct report since the beginning but tried to give him a chance.
While I was on vacation, he showed his true colors, didn't do any work for company leaders and forced my hand with HR. While I'm ready for him to leave, I hate that this needs to happen. I don't want to deal with him anymore and not looking forward to seeing him next week. Should I continue to meet with him or let the chips fall and then resume meetings if he stays the company.

Colleague is not delivering and I'm going to have to request our supervisors get involved
A colleague I've been counting on to finish reports that are his responsibility to complete and send to our client is just not doing the work. I understand he may be overwhelmed and that the work is unpleasant, but it's been several weeks of him promising these two reports are on the way without any product to share. The client is starting to get antsy and wants a status meeting in two weeks. I've told him, he says it's on the way, and then nothing. I realize he's been with us for several months and hasn't had a review yet, but this is becoming a problem for me and standing in the way of my success.
I'm not one to go to managers and complain about anyone, but this time, I think I have to. What is the best way to do this without getting the guy fired? I know if his boss tells him to get moving on the reports and finish them asap, he'll know I said something.
