I mean...the leverage has now shifted so your best bet is to approach this person as an actual human being and have a frank conversation.

Is he sponsored? You may have some leverage if so - but come from a nice place offering congrats and frame as figuring out how you can work together to make his last month’s with you meaningful for him, your client, and ensuring he leaves as strong performer for that sponsorship

Yeah not really sure a firm conversation is the right way to go about it. A1 said it right, this is one of the few instances that a consultant has leverage and personally, I would take advantage of it for sure after years of having to say Yes to pretty much everything

Sounds like instead of trying to impress and be top performing, he is coasting. If he is smart, he is prob doing the bare minimum to not make it easy to build a case to fire him. Not worth it.

Look man that depends on how he was treated. I worked overseas for a douche bag who did not care about me or my personal life. I ended up being depressed. The day I got my offer, I slowed down to a 3, maybe even a 2, intentionally. Sailed through the next 2 months without ANY urgency. Burn bridges? I simply couldn’t give a F anymore...

Have a firm conversation on needing to step up? Again, the performance decline is from a '1' to a '3', just don't see the same level of effort

M7?

If they get fired I’m pretty sure that will affect future employment. If they have professional responsibility, remind them they’re still getting paid well to do a job.

Not sponsored so definitely doesn't intend to come back

Yes, coasting is the right word

Hey guys,
I am planning to startup. Planning to go very big.
The fundamental reason for any business to start is to earn profits if it's not a non-profit org. But, what if the business is owned by the consumers itself. And consumers become shareholders of the business.
1) People fund the business
2) People buy products from it
3) People share profits if there are some.
Goal of such business:
1) Not for profits
2) Increase employment in country
3) Make in India boost
