How should I handle this situation?
I received an email from "Anonymous" that my DR intends to resign and work for a competitor in coming weeks. (There was enough detail in the email to indicate that "Anonymous" is likely internal, but not to identify them. I have also confirmed that the competitor is indeed newly creating the functional unit for which my DR has the skills to build such a business).
This team member is a valuable contributor and I have only recently (within the past month) secured them a payrise and greater responsibility. I have been doing O3 religiously on a weekly basis for a year, and I would describe my relationship with my DR as pretty good, given they work remotely; so face to face contact is uncommon.
Anonymous tip-offs are mischief-making, IMHO. However I don't want to lose this team member.
I'd appreciate the collective wisdom.
PS I'm long-term podcast subscriber. They're bloody brilliant.
