3 Steps to Attracting and Retaining Committed Employees

Do your employees fully embrace the organization’s mission?
What happens to your leadership success when they don’t?

As our nonprofit leaders book club started to discuss Start with Why, by Simon Sinek, we were surprised when a participant said she did not need to know her Why to be effective at work – if her work brings her joy, that is good enough. After some discussion, most attendees agreed that in order to like our work as leaders, we should at least find the mission of the organization to be compelling enough that it brings some type of satisfaction through accomplishment, if not joy.
