If the employee was one of your “stars” it can be extremely frustrating to see them seeking greener pastures. If this happens in your office, here are 3 steps you can take to start recovering.Don’t freak outYou may be tempted to immediately freak out when a key employee quits, but you shouldn’t. Maybe you feel they’re irreplaceable, but the truth is you’re going to be okay. The first resume you look at may not solve all your problems, but you’ll figure it out. You might have to spread some responsibilities around, but the job will get done. Obviously losing a valued employee will be tough in the beginning, but with help from your team, you should bounce back quickly.Meet with your teamWhen a key employee quits, it affects everyone. Make sure the team is informed about what happened and then make a plan to cover all the essential job responsibilities that you’ll be missing. Give your team some time to adjust and think, and then have a group discussion, brainstorm and come up with ideas for moving on.Keep an eye on your finely tuned machineYour team was running to perfection before your star employee quit. Now, you have different people doing different things and your machine may not be running quite like it used to. That’s ok. Unlike an actual machine, you can’t just replace a part and have your machine go back to working exactly like it did before. There will be some adjustment. Keep an eye on things and make sure things aren’t falling apart, but have faith in your team. Just because they can’t stand back up and hit the ground running, doesn’t mean they won’t be running again shortly.last_img read more

Clippers reportedly eyeing Jerry West for advisory role

first_imgBefore turning their attention to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin later this summer, the Clippers appear focused on another free-agent-to-be.A 79-year-old one.Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and Coach Doc Rivers have reportedly met with Jerry West, who built a Hall of Fame career as a player, coach and executive with the Lakers, about joining the Clippers in an advisory role similar to the one he has held with the Golden State Warriors since 2011.According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, the Clippers are serious about luring West away from Golden State when his contract ends in July. West would instantly enhance the team’s credibility and cachet, especially with Paul, Griffin and J.J. Redick about to become free agents and their decisions potentially upending the franchise’s trajectory.Despite their place as self-described championship contenders, the Clippers have never advanced beyond the second round of the playoffs and in April lost to the Utah Jazz in seven games, their second consecutive first-round exit from the playoffs.If he made the surprise move to the Clippers, West would in a sense be following in the footsteps of one of his former Lakers Hall of Fame teammates. Elgin Baylor was the Clippers’ vice president of basketball operations from 1986-2008.

For starters, West continues to live in Los Angeles, shuttling back and forth to the Bay Area for his Warriors duties. Second, he has never been afraid to step away on his own terms. West had been associated with the Lakers since 1960 when he left in 2000, after the first of three consecutive championships, and went on to help rebuild the Memphis Grizzlies before joining the Warriors.A move to the Clippers also would no doubt upset much of the Los Angeles basketball establishment, and irritate the Lakers – something in which those atop the Clippers would take no small amount of pleasure. However, Lakers controlling owner Jeanie Buss had her chance to prevent what could no doubt make for awkward optics.Before Buss hired Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka in February to lead the Lakers’ front office, West was regarded as a candidate to rejoin the mix, and those close to the Hall of Famer have indicated he was excited about a potential homecoming.“He wanted it more than anything,” one source said.West is reportedly under contract with the Warriors through July, cracking open the door for other teams to try to woo him. However, Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear he hopes to retain West, telling the Bay Arena News Group last month, “We would love him back, and we’ve made that known.”last_img read more

Whicker: Tiger Woods mourns the loss of Bryant, his partner in sports dominance

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersNearly 150 miles to the north of Torrey Pines, a 28-year-old helicopter began failing.About 90 minutes after that, Dennis Paulson of the Golf Channel quietly told Joe LaCava, Woods’ caddie, that Kobe Bryant was gone.LaCava kept it to himself. As Woods walked through the back nine, he occasionally heard someone yell, “Mamba” or “Do it for Mamba.” He tuned it out; no sportsman on earth has heard more extraneous fan comments than Woods.Once Woods holed his final putt for a 70 and a ninth-place finish in the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday, LaCava gave him the indigestible news.“I grew up a die-hard Laker fan, it’s part of me, it’s all I remember,” Woods said, caught in the numbness that precedes the first wave of grief. “This is one of the most shocking, tragic days that I can ever remember.” Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, nicknamed Gigi, were headed to Gigi’s basketball game. John Altobelli, who won a state championship last spring coaching Orange Coast College’s baseball team, was on the chopper with his daughter. The four of them frequently traveled like that. The crash claimed them and five others.Bryant and wife Vanessa and the four girls occasionally came to Lakers games, and he coached his daughters’ teams. “Gigi’s a dog,” Bryant proudly told the Sparks’ Candace Parker and TNT’s Kristen Ledlow on a recent podcast. “She loves to compete.”The news penetrated the hardest bubbles, even the one that surrounds the PGA Tour.Matthew Wolff is from Westlake, Max Homa from Valencia.“I talk to Justin Thomas all the time, about how much we try to emulate him,” Homa said. “He’s been a big part of my life. My caddie pulled me aside after a good day of golf (a 67, good for ninth) and said he had terrible news. It’s awful and sad and shocking. My wife and I were on the couch watching his last game (the 60-pointer at the end of the 2016 season). He was my first-ish basketball memory.“He’s Superman. He played the game with, like, eight broken fingers. He shot two free throws with a torn Achilles. It’s hard to believe anybody like that could have the sniffles, let alone something like this happening.”Homa said he’s been inspired by a poster he’d read about and that Bryant kept in his locker.It was the quote from Jacob Riis that adorns the San Antonio Spurs’ locker room in several languages: “Look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the 101st blow it will split in two, and I know that it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”“It’s devastating,” Wolff said. “You feel sick to your stomach. Nothing feels right at this point because you’re not just losing a great player, you’re losing a legend as a person. He’s a light. There’s really nothing you can say except you can’t take anything for granted. I’m devastated and I didn’t even know him.”But Tiger was Kobe’s career Doppelganger.Sign up for the Purple and Bold newsletter for complete Lakers coverage delivered 3 days a week. Subscribe here.Bryant was drafted in June of 1996. Tiger turned pro three months later. When Bryant and the Lakers won the 2000 NBA championship and then the next two, Woods was in the midst of a one-man dynasty. One month after that 2000 Lakers title, which Bryant cemented in Game 4 of the Finals, Woods won the British Open. At that point, he held all four major championship trophies at once.Woods won his 14th major in June of 2008. Bryant won his fourth Lakers title 12 months later and the MVP. Their bodies betrayed them at about the same time. Bryant retired in 2016, a year in which Woods was too injured to play at all.Now Woods is well into his second golfing act. He and Bryant shared so much, shared boundless ambition and intelligence. Each had a massive belief in his destiny.Bryant played voraciously and without mercy. He nicknamed himself after the most vicious reptile in the world. Woods saw no reason to win by five when it was possible to win by 10. They were kindred spirit animals.“When I lived in Newport Beach we’d work out together,” Woods said. “We really connected more on the mental side of it. The amount of hours he’d spend in the gym, it looked like it came natural on the court, but he spent more hours looking at film and working on the details. That’s where he and I connected.“We’re very similar. We had our 20-year run together. It’s shocking.”The coldest, cruelest part of Sunday was the knowledge of the aftershocks that are rolling toward a city that worshiped Kobe Bryant like no one else in its history.This was the calm before the pain.
