The half-life of the most common uranium isotope is 4.5 billion years. (That is not a typo, look it up.)
The half-life of certain talents is about 4.5 years and descending.
Don’t merely replace bodies when people leave—voluntarily or involuntarily—think about your needs over the next year or so. Is the position needed? And if it is, what kinds of talents will make it most productive?
I’ve worked with organizations where the sales vice president tells me, “Our sales director isn’t very good and need to be replaced, but I’m better off with a body in that position than no one at all.” Someone does have to go, and I tell my buyer it’s the sales vice president.
