The whole situation was unnecessary.
Why did this happen?
My colleague had told her boss there was a problem earlier…. but…
Her boss was too busy.
Her boss was not interested.
Her boss had more important things to do.
So, eventually, my colleague quit.
My colleague is a TOP talent. My colleague led some of the highest performing teams.
So, now her boss has MORE work to do. Her boss needs to deliver results with a WEAKER team than ever.
Don’t wait for people to quit to learn your team is disconnected.
Make time to connect with your team daily.
Not only is it more rewarding, it’s the key to better results in the long run too.
