Are you tired of hiring strong talent only to see them jump ship within a year? What’s worse, you invest all that time and energy into properly onboarding employees only to see their performance stagnate a few months in. The main culprit behind high turnover rates and flatlining productivity is disengagement in the workplace.
How can employers get their employees motivated in their work and help them perform at their best?
The infographic below — compiled by MyWorkNinja, a service that connects people with ICF certified executive coaches — demonstrates how leadership coaches can empower employees with the tools they need to set personal and professional goals, develop new skills, and achieve a better work-life balance, all through individualized career development strategies.
