When applied, they can provide tremendous help as we try to shape organizational cultures that are effective and respectful.

LET’S SURVEY YOUR CURRENT STAFF! How many people in your organization have been there 10+ years, are deep-rooted and likely aren’t going anywhere until retirement? We’ll call these staff “trees.” Next, how many people haven’t been there long, and their position will likely turn over multiple times in the next few years? We’ll call these our “revolving door” roles. Today, what percentage of your team is trees verses revolving doors? Is it 70/30, 50/50, 30/70? There’s no right answer, but it’s important to know your current breakdown.
