In this episode, Dean Newlund and Linda Finkle discuss:
- Retaining employees in the era of The Great Resignation
- People or profits – valuing people and your company’s bottom line
- Genuinely valuing crucial conversations
- The role of coaching in the future
- Using intuition in the workplace
- Employees stay not only because of money, it’s not enough. People join organizations and interact with human beings. People need to feel valued, important, and connected with other people in the organization.
- Believe it or not, caring for people in your company is actually good for the company’s bottom line and reputation. Investing in people is always worth it.
- Shift situations from “this is a confrontation” mindset to “this is a conversation.”
- The greatest need we have is not to be heard but to be understood. So don’t talk to convince. Talk to understand.
- We must make space for intuitive decisions in the boardroom. It’s a tool that’s complex and many times cannot be explained, but is very useful.
“People and profits can go together. They don’t have to be siloed or one or the other.” — Linda Finkle
