A question top executives should be asking is,

"Why do my best people stay?"

What does it take to keep the best employees engaged, enthused about the work, their individual status in the organisation, and the positive WHY of the organisation?

We may all have our personal opinions and guesses about why people stay, but the best source of that information is the employees themselves.

True leaders are continually listening and learning about their organisations, their customers and their people. They haven't lost their humility, or their sense that they've not created all the success they've realised by themselves.

In a world of uncertainty the only thing that is predictable is that your strategy will be "subject to correction." Long after the strategy has been shredded, what will endure is the culture. The new reality - culture enables strategy.
