1. Very timely post George! In rural Saskatchewan this is an issue we face, how do we retain our best and brightest? I like your view here, not how to do we hold on to our assets, but how do we create a culture that continually breeds leaders.

    Thanks for post.

  2. George,
    I have a similar situation, but from a different perspective. I was in a supervisory situation and worked on growing my team. At one point, I approached a few of the people on my team about becoming leaders and “leaving the nest” so to speak. In several instances, the person had no desire to take on a leadership role in any organization, even though they would have been good at it.
    When your boss approached you, do you remember what she said or how she phrased it? I know that some people are more comfortable being followers than being leaders, so not everyone I ask will be willing to move on. I want to make sure it isn’t me that is holding my team back by the way I phrased it or approached them.
    Thank you!

  3. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that really understands what they’re discussing on the net.
    You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people ought to read this and understand this
    side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular
    since you definitely possess the gift.
