Some years ago, I had an employee who was not pulling his weight, and his position was critical to the organization. As I kept warning him about his failure to perform his job, our working relationship became strained and began to decline. Things were getting bad and I had to do something, so I decided [...]

Sometimes people have a certain intuition, a premonition if you will, of their own deaths.
