This story or its variations have been shared many times:
CFO: What if we invest in our employees and they leave?
CEO: What if we don’t invest in them and they stay?
In a Fast Company article I wrote called How Much Experience Do You Have?, I offered the following story:
Our CEO offered, “Someone who repeats the same year of their life fifteen times doesn’t have 15 years of experience; they have one year of experience repeated fifteen times.” That thought really stuck with me. We had a lot of people that fit that bill. What are leaders facing?
A business is either evolving or dying. The people within the business are either growing or dying. What are you doing to ensure your people are growing?
