Why People Stay In Your Organization

In conducting research for a book, Marshall Goldsmith and his co-author interviewed more than 200 high-potential leaders from around the world. A key question that they asked was: "If you stay in this company, why are you going to stay?"

The top three answers:
  1. "I am finding meaning and happiness now. The work is exciting, and I love what I am doing." 
  2.  "I like the people here. They are my friends. This feels like a team--like a family. I might make more money if I left, but I don't want to leave the people here." 
  3.  "I can follow my dreams. This organization is giving me the chance to grow and do what I really want to do in life." 

In November 2015 Dr. Marshall Goldsmith was recognized as the #1 Leadership Thinker in the World and the top 5 Management Thinker at the Thinkers50 Award Ceremony in London. In his powerful new book, Triggers, bestselling author and world-renowned executive coach Goldsmith examines the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life.
