How many of us have either heard or seen the title to today’s missive during the course of their lives? Without stretching too many ligaments, I would guess probably at or near 100 percent. But being aware of exit signs often transcends office fire drills or airline safety instructions.
How about those exit signs when one of your valued employees is getting ready to jump ship?
I say “valued” because if they were mediocre or sub-par, I doubt you would care if they sought greener pastures elsewhere.
But there are some obvious and not so obvious signals that someone is preparing to file their two-week notice and it still amazes me how often management is oblivious to changes that, short of carrying a sign, indicate that you’ll need to shortly take out a classified ad.
