One thought on “Building a Simply Irresistible Organization

  1. I believe that one of the important factors, which is missing now in most of the companies is “star” employee motivation. There are always few who makes your company different, those should be treated as partners, get significant shares, etc… I think keeping biggest talents is the most important factor
