Authors of Managing to Make a Difference, Larry Sternberg and Kim Turnage, discuss four key strategies to improve engagement and retention within your organization by focusing on top talent.

“Managers who make a difference engage and develop talent to achieve maximum performance. Engagement and development drive retention, and retention goes straight to the bottom line.

Improving retention improves profitability, morale, and overall performance.”
