Team and Leadership Excellence Newsletter

Vol.24 February 2014

 Welcome to the twenty-fourth monthly newsletter. 


During a conversation I was having with the managing director of a company recently he asked me if the team leadership consultancy I provide to organizations help reduce attrition.


My answer was a confident ‘yes’ and I gave 3 reasons for it.


Most people don’t leave companies. They leave leaders. People join other companies even at a lesser package if the current leader is bad and they reject attractive offers. Therefore developing leadership will make them able to inspire their teams, help their teams grow and win so that they stay back in the organization thereby reducing attrition. 


When organizations have a winning culture built on solid values, then people look forward to coming to work in the morning. Such environments make people feel dignified, help people have real conversations, find people supporting each other to succeed and overall find the experience valuable and fun. People like to work in such environments and most people would not leave such organizations even for attractive offers, thereby reducing attrition.


When organizations have a clear strategic direction, clear strategic priorities, strategy communicated to the entire organization, clear roles defined as per the strategy, people empowered and enabled to deliver the strategies, it engages people. People love to work in such organizations as it helps them to learn and grow to their fullest potential and many would not leave even for attractive packages, thereby reducing attrition.
