Have you always wanted to know when someone is about to quit?  Now you can learn what signs to look for that will tip off when your counterpart, direct report or boss is looking to leap.  In today’s podcast Dr. Bray will walk you through the sure signs that something is about to happen.

 

TODAY’S QUESTION

Q: “I need to quit. How soon should I tell my boss?” -Anonymous, Spain

A: Don’t let your emotions get in the way of leaving your company in the best way possible.  Quitting too soon may cause problems for you so it is important to discretely find out how your organization handles resignations. You don’t want to leave them in a bind without enough notice, that can be bad for your reputation.

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

There are verbal and non verbal tells in relationships, poker, criminals and the workplace. If managers could identify employees that are at risk of quitting they could resolve issues in a mutually beneficial way.

 

Just a few of the Pre-quitting Behaviors

  1. Work productivity has decreased.
  2. Acting less like a team player than usual.
  3. Doing minimum amount of work more frequently.
  4. Less interested in pleasing their manager.

What should you do when someone starts exhibiting these behaviors?

  • Focus on retaining these employees in the short-term.
  • Conduct a “Stay Interview”.
  • Make sure you have 2 or 3 other individuals that can step in to cover any given job.

So, are you good at hiding your own pre-quitting behaviors? Stay engaged and communicate! Take vacation days for interviewing for a new job instead of making “doctor appointments” or calling in sick.
