What Have You Learned From an Employee Today?

What Have You Learned From an Employee Today?

Today following a leadership training program, I learned from a client's employee that she's seriously considering leaving their company. The employee is well-respected by her peers and has delivered consistently. She's apparently tried three times to have a conversation with her Vice President (VP) about two trending operational issues, but the VP has cut each of their conversations short with an, "It's not important now" reply.

What Have You Learned From an Employee Today?This is the third time I've heard this type of comment about this particular VP. I've shared what I could with my client. It's up to them to learn something now on their own (either confirm or dis-affirm the information). If it's true and the VP is ignoring key staff, they'll leave and my client will retain a poor VP. If it's not true, my client needs to determine why three different key employees are accusing the VP of this behavior. Either way, they need to take some action. Their leadership team is in trouble.

That's what I learned today from a client's employee. What did you learn today from one of yours?
