Tempting You to Stay. It's a reaction that's both good and bad: Your boss values you so much that he or she offers you a raise or promotion to stay. But it can leave you feeling conflicted: You have another great job lined up__but now that there's more money on the table, do you really want to leave your current position?
Spot the Signs. The most obvious sign that you'll receive this reaction is if you haven't had a healthy relationship with your manager in the past. Maybe you continually challenged his ideas, and he took that as a sign of disrespect. Or, maybe she always made unreasonable demands, and you were never able to see eye_to_eye on your to_do list. Or perhaps his moods were completely unpredictable. In any case, if your relationship has been strained, you may receive a less_than_ideal response to your two weeks' notice.
