Let’s all put on our leader hats for a moment, shall we?
Now let’s pretend that one of your employees, who has been with the organization for 15+ years and has been an excellent team member, has resigned from their position. How long would it take to reach out to this employee to acknowledge their resignation and find out if there is any hope of salvaging the situation?
What if I told you that story was real, it has now been three weeks, and none of the leadership at this employee’s organization has reached out. What would you do as the leader? Would you write this employee? How would you feel as an employee? Would you feel hurt, insulted, and like you made the right decision to leave?
