5 things to do when your team is imploding!

There's a huge turnover in your team and it just feels like the boss is no longer around, nor are the people you used to work with. It's changed,  and not for the better you feel. Here is what you can do about it.

1. Take the opportunity to shine!

Face it, when your team is dying, the people most worried are the bosses! They're wondering how anything is going to get done when all the star performers are leaving. But this is a great opportunity for you to get in there and show them what you can do. Even better, expectations will be low because you might be facing responsibilities two or even three levels above you. Just make sure your bosses know it one bonus and promotion time!

2. Consider looking for another job

When so many people are leaving, you will naturally start to worry about whether there's any future for you in the team, and in the company. You have to consider why people are leaving. Towards more money? Opportunities? Are they running away from a bad boss? Are you in the same situation, or can you see yourself in the same situation in the near future? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", start dusting off that CV!

3. Start the networking

With so many people leaving, it's a good bet that most are leaving for other jobs. These will be your best ambassadors in those new companies. Make sure to keep in touch with the ones you have a really good working relationship and let them know if you're interested in new opportunities. It's also a good time to find out from them what the market is paying for your role.

4. Snoop around

It's a strange thing but when someone resigns, lots of people start telling him things they would NEVER have when they were colleagues, I think it's because they think since he's leaving, it's ok. So you should talk to whoever's leaving and start trying to gather more information about what's going on in your own office.

5. Make your demands now

Like point 1, if the turnover is bad enough, the bosses are going to be running scared.. especially if they don't have a plan and you are a valued part of the team. If so, this is the point you want to start telling them what would make you stay!
