The best coaches coach themselves out of a job. The goal is not to keep people dependent on you, but to give them wings.
The greatest gratification comes when the student outgrows the teacher. The best coaches coach themselves out of a job.

My new blog post looks at how introverts and extroverts can work together using their differences to achieve extraordinary results.
How introverts and extroverts can learn to team and become dynamic duos who create something together that neither of them would have done on their own.

+Jesse Lyn Stoner , I use my Smart Swarms Networks System, which by its very design and engagement, transforms culture. 
The key is the proper design and engagement, which is still enormously challenging for traditional management groups, and those who report to them, and those they report to. 
I think you'll agree it takes a special and courage type of leadership to employ the "slice" type method to organizational and cultural change!

Stay interviews are a great tool to support managers in taking responsibility for employee retention. I enjoyed interviewing +Sharon Jordan-Evans for this article.
"Stay Interviews" put the responsibility for employee retention in the hands of those who are in the best position to make a difference - managers.
