Presentation abstract

We all know that people quit their leaders, not their jobs. It costs quite a lot of the companies. According to some researches when workers voluntarily quit, it creates a tremendous replacement burden of more than 12 percent of pre-tax income for the average company. Yet some organizations report average voluntary turnover of less than half of industry peers.

  • What makes their employees stay?
  • Authentic leadership? It could be, but how?
  • What exactly does authentic leadership mean?
  • How it seems in action?
  • How hard it is not to be perfect?
  • How the leadership style impacts the corporate culture?
  • What makes Gen X and millennials “willing to stay” in a company according to a Great Place to Work® survey?
