This is TheSchoolHouse302 monthly #review&reflect, wrapping up our focus on employee motivation and retention.

What do I need to master to lead better and grow faster for more effective employee motivation and retention?

Know that two-thirds of employee  motivation and retention occurs prior to hiring someone. Getting top talent on the team takes clarity with job postings, position responsibilities, company core values, and all that any high performer wants from an organization before considering application. The one-third after that is about accountability, autonomy, and freedom. Read more here.

What should I read to continually learn and grow if I want real employee motivation and retention?

In our #readthisseries we featured First Break All the Rules: What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently. It’s packed with Gallup’s research on what leaders need to do to sustain productive environments where employees are motivated to apply their discretionary efforts, going above what might typically be expected. Get other top picks here

What does an expert have to say about employee motivation and retention?

For our #onethingseries, we interviewed Dr. Rob Rescigno, Dean of the College of Business at Wilmington University. His insight into building trust, staying curious, and the power of reflection can’t be missed. Listen here.

That’s our #review&reflect for employee motivation and retention. Take a look back to take a step forward.

TheSchoolHouse302 is about getting to simple and maximizing effective research-based strategies that empower individuals to lead better and grow faster.
