120. When A Direct Resigns, What’s Your Responsibility?

About this Podcast

Ep. 120 – It can be tricky when one of your direct report resigns, especially when they’ve been doing a great job.

If you are a new manager, you may not have experienced a resignation yet, but it is inevitable that at some point an employee will resign.
