A Key Employee is Quitting: Now What?

How efficient are you at work?

I’m sure you’ve heard people say “I give 110%.”  We all know you can only give 100% because that’s all you have.  So you will probably be surprised to learn that someone giving 80% on the job is doing really well. Why? People can’t be 100% efficient all the time.
