It’s Quittin’ Time – but it doesn’t have to be.
There is a lot of ink being spilled over the Great Resignation phenomena. And, for good reason. Companies are experiencing the impact of their skilled employees’ choices to move on to something different – either because of money or because of purpose.
But leaders don’t need to see themselves as victims of this process. In fact, leaders can see this period of workforce change as representing new opportunities, according to Keith Ferrazi, chairman of the consulting firm Ferrazzi Greenlight. He argues that we as leaders should reframe the great resignation as the Great Exploration in an article, he wrote with the CHRO of Unilever – Mike Clementi.
In the podcast with Mr. Ferrazzi and David Brancaccio on NPR Marketplace, he says, “It’s time for us to re-contract and reconnect with our associates, giving them time to explore, giving them time to question, giving them time to reengage and recommit to the organization that they’re working for.”
