This question already has an answer here:
a) I have accepted a new job offer and in the process of serving my notice period. My productivity has dipped, I just mentally do not feel that motivated to work since I know that I am leaving. I am concerned that my boss is going to pick up on this and give me a difficult time.
Is this normal?
b) The original plan was to serve my notice period and start my new role straight away, I am close to finding an experienced replacement and want to take a week off. The trouble is that my boss is already expecting me to serve the whole 2 month notice period which he has already shortened (originally 3 months). What is the best way to negotiate?
