People Don’t Leave Companies, They Leave You

People don’t leave companies, they leave you.

A friend reached out to request I let them know if I come across any positions.

“Are you unhappy with your job?” I asked.

“No! I love what I do and my work is fulfilling” she replied.

“Then why are you looking to make a change” I countered.

Her answer surprised me.

“I want to work for someone who inspires me and values my ideas…maybe even a mentor.”

Business books and consultants are fond of saying: ‘People leave people not companies.’

But what do managers and leaders really do to address this challenge?

In this crazy ride called life, every one of us wants to know we are valued.

We want to contribute and be appreciated.

Above all, we want to work WITH and FOR someone who inspires us along the way.

How do YOU inspire your team?
