The greatest thing we can do today as leaders is to invest in your employees and to understand them potentially more deeply than we ever have. When we understand what motivates a person and we actually invest in that motivation talent retention and development will skyrocket. We can no longer have these ridiculous discussions about not having time to coach our employees because if we're not coaching and conversing and people leave we're ultimately using time to interview replacement candidates. That cannot be a logical solution.


The great resignation I literally thought was going to be a fad or some movement that people were making up to sell their own products and services when in fact it's real. So many statistics are coming out right now depicting almost one out of every two employees are looking for new jobs due to anxiety or stress or flexible workplace conditions. What makes leaving an organization tough is having a leader who understands a person's motivation and it's fully invested in that person's motivation. Nothing will replace a leader who coaches and converses for the betterment of his or her people then a leader who coaches.
