Retaining your key talent is a daily battle. You need an engagement culture, said Dr. Troy; 87% of engaged talent are less likely to leave your organization. To cultivate engagement, you must cultivate cohesion. How do you do that? Create a sense of belonging, a sense of value and purpose, and commitment.

Dr. Troy encouraged the leaders in the room to perform a cultural inspection to gauge whether their team is engaged. Pay attention to their greetings (how they greet you, each other, customers, etc.), laughter (are team members having fun do they feel comfortable), and give away some handshakes (and maybe a hug or two) to connect with congratulate team members.

Developing, engaging, and retaining a new employee is just as important as having a succession plan for a leader, Dr. Troy stressed.
