Under pressure to deliver results in good times and bad, leaders face a variety of challenges:
• We can’t hire, but we need to grow.
• We need everyone’s best, but people are burned out.
• We’re okay today, but we’re not ready to compete tomorrow.
• We have the best talent, but they’re not engaged.
In these circumstances, leaders can’t afford to waste talent. They need people to innovate, to solve problems, to deliver results—and to be excited and engaged as they do so.
