The number-one reason employees leave is their leader. Are your leaders doing all they can proactively to retain your most valuable assets—your people?

This course helps leaders understand their critical role in retaining organizational talent. They learn to identify what it takes to keep employees happy and satisfied, and how to conduct "quick check" discussions critical for retaining valuable employees. By taking a proactive approach to retaining people, and encouraging people to openly discuss what it will take for them to stay, leaders can create an environment in which people feel valued and satisfied in their jobs.

Do You Face Any of These Issues?

  • Are your leaders doing too little, too late when an employee is ready to walk out the door?
  • Is your organization losing some of its best and brightest employees?
  • Is turnover high because employees feel they’re being under-utilized and will have greater opportunities elsewhere?
  • Do leaders know how to handle issues that come up in job satisfaction discussions?
