“You need to improve.”
Shocking! You did yesterday, you do today, and you will tomorrow.
Leaders should notice patterns however: If people reporting to the same boss keep leaving, it is obvious you have a problem.

Why are they staying?
What can you do better?
Can they help make you and the company better?
One last reminder…
You don’t get the right to talk smack about your company when you aren’t sticking around to be part of the solution…
