During our career we get confronted exposed or involved with these situations ...
Have you ever noticed leaders spend a lot of time talking about talent, only to make the same mistakes over and over again? Few things in business are as costly and disruptive as unexpected talent departures. With all the emphasis on leadership development, I always find it interesting so many companies seem to struggle with being able to retain their top talent. In my blog, I’ll share some research, observations, and insights on how to stop the talent door from revolving.
Ask any Top manager or CEO if they have a process for retaining and developing talent and they’ll quickly answer in the affirmative. They immediately launch into a series of soundbites about the quality of their talent initiatives, the number of high-potentials , blah, blah, blah. As with most things in the corporate world, there is too much process built upon theory and not nearly enough practice built on experience.
When examining the talent at any organization look at the culture, look at the results, . Despite some of the delusional perspective in the corner office, when we interview their employees, here’s what they tell us:
- More than 30% believe they’ll be working someplace else inside of 12 months.
- More than 40% don’t respect the person they report to.
- More than 50% say they have different values than their employer.
- More than 60% don’t feel their career goals are aligned with the plans their employers have for them.
- More than 70% don’t feel appreciated or valued by their employer.
Smart companies and leaders don't do the following mistakes
-To fail to unleash their passions
-To fail to challenge their intellect
-To fail to engage there creativity
-To fail to develop there skills
-To fail to give them a voice
-To fail to care
-To fail to lead
-To fail to value their contribution
-To fail to increase their responsibility
-To fail to respect your commitment
Those are the main reason you loose talent ....
Value the points above and the talent will value you as a boss owner or manager
