Thoughtful Leader Podcast Episode 49 – Employee Retention: More Than Stopping People Quitting

When it comes to retaining people, all you need to do is to stop them from leaving, right? No, not really.

If all you do is try to keep people from leaving, it’s not that hard. But then you run the risk of leading a team of people who are unhappy and unmotivated… but not unhappy enough to leave. I call this the motivation dead zone – you can see the zones pictured below.

Satisfaction Zones 2

In this episode, we look at how to get people out of the Quitting Zone, through the Motivation Dead Zone and into the Satisfaction Zone, through the use of Hygiene Factors and Positive Motivators.

It’s the last episode for the year too – I hope you have some time off to spend with loved ones and take a break!
