Beverly Kaye, Sharon Jordan-Evans Berrett – Love ’em or Lose ’em 6th Edition

Retention and continuous engagement of employees is a universal and timeless problem for managers. Leadership style, integrity, and psychological safety are a few of the drivers to stay with a company or switch. Since 1999, Beverly Kaye and Sharon Jordan-Evans, recycled their Love ’em or Lose ’em over and over, and compiled the 6th edition in 2020.

Twenty-six strategies with research to back up and examples to learn from in alphabetical order are offered for new and veteran managers in companies regardless of size and geography. Straightforward, no-frills, or rocket science around in this popular book. Bite-size chapters for easy consumption. Pitfall: superficial reading and forgetting to practice what’s taught.
