    Default LSEs and shrinking teams

    LSEs, consider this scenario: you're a leader of a team. Someone decides to leave your team, a trusted member who you had come to rely on as a friend. How do you react?

    Offer them an incentive for a possible return and look into viable replacements.

    1- try to see if there´s a way of changing the person´s mind, if there´s not

    2- get fucking mad and let the rage out breaking something

    3- if the person was too valuable, cry

    4- try to see possible replacements and minimize losses once the rage/sadness stage is past (usually it´s quick)

    Your question is rather ... broad. There are a number of different factors determining whether or not I'd say or try to get employment or put my efforts someplace else. It depends on the people, what I see of the future, how things are benefiting me...


    That "a friend" is leaving doesn't mean that much.


    If you want a better answer, give a better question.

    If they have a good reason, compensate. If they don't have a good reason, over-compensate and write them off as a fair-weather backstabber.
