3 Ways Leaders Can Retain Top Talent
Tom Eddington
Founder, Conscious Leadership Expert
Eddington Advisory Services
From his work with some of the world's most admired companies, Tom shares three characteristics conscious leaders can use to create thriving organizations: "1) Self-awareness and self-mastery: These are critical for leaders to understand how they show up in their environment. Which behaviors are they exhibiting that are helpful and effective? Which behaviors are actually derailing their efficacy as a leader? Such inquiries require an openness to receive genuine feedback from team members. 2) Open, honest communication: Honesty does not undermine authority as many leaders fear; on the contrary, it opens up channels of communication in which trust can thrive. This level of openness is only possible if the leader is willing to be vulnerable. It starts with providing a safe space in which subordinates can provide honest communication. 3) Being present. People can tell if you are distracted simply through your body language. Good eye contact and a non-defensive posture give off a very different signal than fixing your gaze elsewhere while fiddling with your smartphone. … When we show up 100 percent at work, we allow our employees to do the same."
Tom Eddington has worked three decades in business as a consultant, educator, entrepreneur, and strategic advisor. He is a student and teacher of board, leadership, and organization effectiveness – focusing on how they grow, achieve, and sustain effectiveness while remaining stewards for their stakeholders. Tom has lived, worked, and studied on six continents, working with leaders across all industry sectors and organization stages of development. As a student, mentor, coach, and advisor, he has focused on the area of consciousness and conscious leadership over the past two decades. A pragmatic optimist who's driven by intellectual curiosity, Tom has sought out opportunities to teach and work in the private, public, academic, and non-profit sectors. He has worked with industry leaders and most-admired organizations including HP, W.L. Gore, MBNA Corporation, Royal Dutch/Shell and Taproot Foundation. He holds B.A. degrees in Business and Psychology and an M.S. degree in Organizational Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania. He has worked with board members and senior executives at hundreds of organizations. In addition, he has been an adjunct professor in the City University (London) M.B.A. program. Tom has founded and co-founded four organizations including FutureShapers, My Broker Donates, and Eddington Advisory Services. Learn more at www.eddingtonadvisory.com.
