We are quickly headed into fall which usually creates a time of review for me. Where has the year gone? It seems to move faster every year. Yet it is that review that causes me to stop and ponder a few recent events.
Do you ever get that feeling that just about the time you get it all together, someone comes along side and sort of hits you in the head? One of my clients had just that thing happen this week. They were making great strides in their business only to have a key employee decide the grass was greener at another company. The employee said they didn’t want to leave, but they couldn’t turn down the offer. Wow, that was the preverbal baseball bat alongside the business head – which feels pretty personal.
What could have been done to change the outcome? They tried to create a counter offer. It didn’t work and often doesn’t. In many cases, there isn’t anything you can do, yet I am not one to stand by the sidelines and say, “Oh well, nothing to learn here”. Here is what you can do:
Turnover is hard, yet your attitude is critical in how you weather the crisis. Know that there is someone else out there who can do the job just as good if not better. When you find them, determine what you can do to encourage greater job satisfaction and make it happen.
