"This is a very good book on a very important subject -- keeping the talent that makes your organization go. Down- to-earth and practical, it gives managers, supervisors, and leaders things that they can do tomorrow -- no, today -- to stop the brain-drain. You'd better read it before your best folks set sail for somewhere else."
-Bill Bridges, author of "Transitions," "Job Shift" and "You, Inc."
