Tailor Your Management Style for Higher Retention and Engagement

The Great Resignation may be over but even employees who stay aren’t necessarily engaged or productive. A one-size-fits-all management style doesn't work either. To get the most from employees, managers must focus on understanding and customizing their approach for each individual.In many organizations, individual contributors who excel in their jobs are often promoted to management. That’s great but [...]

Another “New Normal” ? by Frank Dadah

By Frank Dadah “How to manage a hybrid team.” “Leading in a hybrid work environment.” “Managing virtually.” The “new normal.” These have become the catch phrases of organizational life since the world turned upside down in 2020.

Towering at 20 feet and weighing 32,000 lbs., its power is unrivaled as it picks up speed toward its unsuspecting prey. In the blood-warm Pacific, whales cautiously avoid encountering a Megalodon. It is like a Great White Shark except for one difference [...]
