“The challenge of finding, attracting, developing and retaining the right talent must be a key management focus. Hiring the right talent is one challenge but even more important is retaining top talent in whom your organization has invested. If your organization is losing critical staff members, it can safely be said that others are looking to leave as well. Developing a team of leaders committed to taking daily Purposeful Action is your secrete weapon.””- – Towanna Burrous Freeman
