I believe all managers have faced this business case at least once in their managerial career.  Probably the only exception is the newly appointed manager ...


Case study No. 6:

You are manager of a small department.  It’s Tuesday and you are approached by your best employee with a request to allow her to take the next workday – off.  You ask her what she needs that day for.  After a short hesitation, she decided to be honest with you and she shares that she is going to an interview for a new job.

You're shocked.  It comes immediately to your mind that losing your best specialist will seriously undermine your department results.

What will you do?  The employee stands in front of you and expect your managerial decision.
