It’s not easy when employees leave. Sometimes people leave to advance their careers in another organization. Sometimes they leave because we are forced to make layoffs. Other times, people leave because it's time to let a low-performer go. Whatever the reason, people are watching how leaders treat those who exit. In this podcast episode, our host Janet Pilcher and guest Quint Studer discuss how we can support people who leave and why it is so critical to set the right example for those who stay.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
What are some perspectives leaders should let go of around team members who leave?
How can we handle letting a low-performing employee go?
What can we do to help maximize the potential of employees who seek opportunities for growth?
Take the High Ground When People Leave
“Your job is to maximize people’s human potential and that sometimes means they stay working with you and that sometimes means they leave you.”
Ultimately, leaders want individuals and teams within their organization to be successful. We do our best to recruit and retain top talent and ensure they have the tools needed for success. To maintain high performing cultures and team morale, sometimes the leader’s role also requires that we have difficult conversations with toxic or underperforming individuals. The leader is the only person who can address poor performance, and when we don’t, our team may suffer the consequences. The Hard Stuff Guide supports teams in addressing performance issues and letting go of problem employees.
