How to lose your best employees? Do you know how to lose the best people in the company? If you don’t, today I have a few suggestions for you. The definition of the best person is someone who makes an effort, is motivated, and wants to work.
Creating a Hellish Organization
Do you know what a change of perspective is? That’s what I do in workshops – How (not) to lose the best people for a team of managers in companies. We create a so-called “Hellish organization”! By understanding how people operate, their needs, values, in the end, we do everything to lose them! 80% of participants believe that communication is the key. This is where you can “mess up” completely.
Communication-Based Strategies to Lose Your Best People
Suggestions from workshop participants – team managers. What they recommend, or rather – how to lose the best people, based on communication:
- Change your mind and priorities at least twice a week, especially for those who work in an orderly and methodical way. Remember – without informing them about why and what we are changing and implementing.
- Cut off ideas from those who generate the most in your environment. You can use words like – It’s impossible! Why bother! But! We have our plans, we’re not changing anything!
- Attend meetings without an agenda and lead them in such a way that 50 minutes pass, and there are no solutions and concrete action plans. Lead to situations where people leave the meetings and say – “We didn’t decide anything concrete”!
- Send emails to people on Friday at 3:00 PM, requiring a response by Monday morning.
One of the factory directors told me after the workshops – these are not workshops from the “Nice to have” series, but a “Must have.”
