Should you convince a star employee to stay?

Art Markman

When your best employee gets a job offer elsewhere, you have two options: try to convince them to stay, or let them go gracefully. It’s a scenario all leaders will eventually encounter, so it’s best to prepare ahead of time rather than wing it in the moment. Art Markman, author of “Bring Your Brain to Work: Using Cognitive Science to Get a Job, Do it Well, and Advance Your Career,” provides the words and actions that could help leaders keep their star employees, as well as some advice for letting them go when the time comes.
