It’s 9:00am on a Friday. You have rational reasons to leave your current firm, and you have been building yourself up all week to inform your partner you are leaving. You have chosen Friday because it will give you the weekend to recover. You step into his office, and hand across
your resignation letter.
He sits you down and says:
“You are making a mistake. We have great plans for you. It’s bad timing for us. Where’s your loyalty? What did they offer you? You are not going there are you! I’ve heard bad things about that team. We will exceed any offer. I want you to think carefully about your decision.”
