Over the past few months I've had some shifts in my team, a member was promoted to another team, two left for family reasons (moved states, family emergency), one has left for a spot in another department and today I was dealt another blow by someone leaving for another company. The person is a very strong member and will be a loss for our team.
That's 5 leaves in a little under 6 months. I'm very worried about communicating this to my already understaffed team. My manager and I are meeting tomorrow to figure out how we re-prioritize, I'm meeting with another manager who has also been through something similar.
But moral is low because of all the departures and I'm afraid this takes it down again.
I'm very self reflective and have been looking at things I can do better as well. I'm going to have to push my team like they haven't before. We've had a lot of trouble getting people in lately due to the market. The market is good and offering more the what my company is willing too.
How do I keep moral up in this time and continue to push my team?
