Loosing good people


Of course, the question with loosing good people – aside from the fact that, you know, they’re good at what they do, they deliver, they work well with others, they add value whenever they’re called on, you like working with them and the organisation benefits because they’re around – is what you’re left with when they go.

If what you’re left with is other good people and the opportunity to find even more good people who’ll bring interesting experiences, new perspectives and their own unique energy, then all is well with the world.

If what you’re left with however is another hole and a slowly diminishing average, because this wasn’t the first good person to go, and those that stay seem more interested in the personal over the collective, then there’s an issue.

And the issue is you.

Skippy strategy: Deal with the issues, or the good people will go.
