#050 - Leading Through the Great Resignation

In today's episode we talk about the 40% of workers that are planning on leaving their job over the next 12 months and what we can do about it as leaders within our organization.

Episode at a Glance:

  1. NPR coined the term Great Resignation as a way to label the abnormally high number of people planning on leaving their jobs as we begin to exit the worst of the pandemic.
  2. The decision to leave is largely driven by a desire for remote work flexibility and potentially a drive to take control over part of their life after navigating a crisis that gives a fresh start.
  3. Organizations are poised to lose their best and brightest in this time period as the job market has heavily skewed towards job seekers.
  4. What are actions we can take today to mitigate impact within our own organizations, or is it too late?
