07 Feb Leadership Nudge™ 191 – What If They Stay?
I want to talk about spending time investing in our people, and really helping them to be successful.
One of the things that holds leaders back from this is the thought, “I don’t know when my investment is going to pay off.”
People are a long-term investment. We can’t exactly predict when that is going to happen.
I want you to imagine that you’re going to work with the people that you’re working with all your life.
There’s a phrase out there that goes something like “What if I train my people and they leave?”
Well, what about this?
What if you don’t train them and they stay?
I want you to imagine that you’re working with your people all your life, and see how it changes the way that you think about helping them be better at what they want to be.
