Tingles of success

This morning I found myself unexpectedly out of bed at 5.30am to meet friends for a running trip around Sydney Harbour. With the sun beating down and the latest summer anthem blaring through my ears I could feel my whole body pounding the tarmac beneath me. I have to say it gave me goose bumps. I felt I could tackle anything - Wendell sailor step aside!

It made me think how you breed that confidence in your organisation and tap in to that energy and unused talent, or at least harbour it?

Having spoken to hundreds of employees across all types of organisations I feel informed enough to say that it's not all about the money, money, money. After all it cost me nothing to get out of bed this morning and do my bit for body and mind. So what was it that thrilled me? maybe it was the sun, possibly spending time with my friends, could it be the endorphins? so what makes your staff tick? wouldn't you like to know?

What drives us here at Retention Partners is finding those little Gems of information.

Often employees may not know what gives them the buzz until they have the right conversation.

Wouldn't it be fab to breed an organisation full of energy and productivity? Yes because they both = profit, and we all like profit.....
