Five Reasons Your Retention Practices Are Not Working | TalentQuest | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

The days of people staying with the same company throughout their career are long since gone. Company-sponsored pension plans are going the way of dinosaurs, along with blind employee loyalties. In fact, the trend seems to have shifted more to ‘job-hopping’ every few years. Of course this was not the case during the recession. Many people opted to stay put even in the unhappiest of situations, including those who would be considered highly marketable.

Indeed, the key to understanding Jazz is not to focus on the individual musicians and what they alone are playing. Rather, the beauty of Jazz is found in listening to how these musicians can create this sense of harmony and connectedness, even while playing what at times might sound more like a competing mixture of contradictions.

(From the article): Keep it simple. Life is complicated enough. Clients and colleagues expect us to be expert enough to keep things simple and easy to follow. It’s a constant struggle to focus more on the story you’re trying to tell than on the slides. But by reminding myself and my team that we’re sitting down with a client to have a nice conversation, we might be able to avoid coming across as the type of people who overly complicate things or act in a way that’s self-important.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 7, 2:32 PM

This is a great twist on most leadership articles.  I, too, have been guilty of most of these at various times in my career.  I think that as leaders, we are always reflecting and learning.  So, I would add:

 

Does not continue to learn and grow - does not attend staff development with teachers, does not read, is not open to others' ideas.

 

Is unavailable emotionally, intellectually, and physically - in the office with the door closed or off campus.  Meetings are closed to all but a select few.  These meeting are often just a dissemination of the leader's ideas and attendees do not disagree out of fear of reprisal.

 

These are not just demotivators - they can undermine the entire school culture.
