Deeper Dive #1: Accountability: How to Create a Culture of Accountability

But can a manager’s effectiveness at his job significantly affect whether an employee will stay with the company or quit? To answer this, we can take a look at Google’s Project Oxygen, which set out to prove that managers weren’t necessary, especially for a company with a flat organization. However, they managed to show the opposite.

How to Communicate Effectively with Your Clients

Emma Worden,

Successful communication is key to any healthy relationship, and your business clients are no exception. Establishing boundaries and clarifying expectations as soon as you start your business journey can help you avoid conflict and misunderstandings, and ultimately boost your retention rate simply thanks to your transparent approach.
