i have a friend i've brought with me between a few different companies over the last 6-7 years. He was [is[ a brilliant worker and someone you could [can] depend on to get the work done no matter what.
over the last 6 months i've noticed a dramatic change in attitude and performance. I've approached him about it several times with no success.
where i'm at is, this friend of mine's performance (or lack of) has become apparent to my CTO.
i guess i'm looking for advice on how to come out of this with the star performer he used to be, and the friend that i value as well.
thanks in advance
