Help is hard to find. Good help is nearly impossible to find.
In those precious windows of time when we successfully attract and add exceptional talent to our Team(s), it's an excellent idea to try to keep them on the Team.
Consider the following moves to hang on to talented team members:
- Early and often, share the WHY of your organization with those folks.
- Clarify the OUTCOMES you aspire, and have clear metrics around which you are tracking those outcomes. Then, let those horses run.
- INTERACT often with those players, listening closely to their thoughts. Time is the most precious resource we have as leaders; giving as much of it as we can to valued team members is a force multiplier.
