Have you ever noticed leaders spend a lot of time talking about talent, only to make the same mistakes over and over again? Few things in business are as costly and disruptive as unexpected talent departures.

With all the emphasis on leadership development, I always find it interesting so many companies seem to struggle with being able to retain their top talent. In today’s column, I’ll share some research, observations, and insights on how to stop the talent door from revolving.

Ask any CEO if they have a process for retaining and developing talent and they’ll quickly answer in the affirmative. They immediately launch into a series of soundbites about the quality of their talent initiatives, the number of high-potentials in the nine box, blah, blah, blah. As with most things in the corporate world, there is too much process built upon theory and not nearly enough practice built on experience.

Brian Martin's curator insight, October 11, 2013 12:05 PM

A great reminder for Leaders and HR Departments everywhere.

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, October 11, 2013 1:35 PM

Retaining good and talented employees requires maximizing their full performance potential. This is not only good for employee retention, it is also good for the overall performance of the organization. 

 

This article makes some great points about why people leave organizations.

 

It all starts with establishing and communicating an organizational culture, then hiring people who fit into and will perpetuate the culture. This is only possible when leaders have a solid understanding of what motivates and what demotivates their people. Without this understanding, it is nearly impossible to get the most out of people.

Smell & Your Brain Survey | The Michael J. Fox Foundation

Smell & Your Brain Survey | The Michael J. Fox Foundation | Sensory Emotions | Scoop.it

Share This Infographic: Smell and Your Brain

 

Only half of U.S. adults are aware that reduced sense of smell can be a precursor to brain disease. Smell loss is a common but little noticed symptom of Parkinson's disease (PD) that may occur years before the onset of motor symptoms or a diagnosis. We’ve developed this infographic to help explain the connection between smell and brain health.

 

The Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) needs 10,000 people over 60 who do not have Parkinson's to take a simple smell survey online. Share this infographic on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to help spread the word. 

 

Take the Survey Now!

The Smell of Peanut Butter Could Diagnose Alzheimer's

The Smell of Peanut Butter Could Diagnose Alzheimer's | Sensory Emotions | Scoop.it

Alzheimer's often impacts the olfactory cortex first and, as such, compromises our sense of smell, specifically in the brain's left hemisphere. Now, most odors actually trigger both our olfactory and trigeminal systems, the latter of which explains why we cry while cutting onions. But researchers at the University of Florida have found a loophole by harnessing the power of peanut butter, a "pure odorant" that only involves the olfactory pathway.

In their pilot study, patients were presented with a tablespoon of peanut butter and then asked to close their eyes and mouth while blocking one nostril. The physician then held a ruler to their open nostril and slowly moved the peanut butter closer in 1 centimeter increments, until the patient could smell it. The findings were consistent with the pattern of Alzheimer's degradation: those with the disease couldn't detect the scent in their left nostril until the peanut butter was an average of 10 centimeters closer than on the right side. As it turns out, this result wasn't replicated in patients with other cognitive disorders.

This test could give us a simple, straightforward way to diagnose Alzheimer's, and it could be particularly useful in, say, rural clinics that might lack the equipment required to conduct more complex testing.

8 Keys To Creating An Emotional Connection Between Products And People

8 Keys To Creating An Emotional Connection Between Products And People | Sensory Emotions | Scoop.it

Fifty percent of every buying decision is driven by emotion. Which, for anyone responsible for bringing a product to market, makes a recent Forrester Research survey a concern. It reported that 89% of the respondents felt no personal connection to the brands they buy.

Simply put, the foundation of the marketing communications industry--the consumer’s emotional relationship with products--has never been more fragile.

 

In our experience as product specialists, we have come to identify eight forces that have a profound and lasting impact on a product’s relationship with its audience. Use them sensitively as you create your brand’s marketing communications and you’re building a love affair between a product and its consumers.
