With Thanksgiving upon us, it is clearly a great time to be thankful for our family and friends. What better way to do that than spend time with them, eating, celebrating, talking. My wish is that everyone reading this has that opportunity.
As 2017 comes into sight it is time for business owners, executives, leaders, supervisors to put time and effort into our goals and objectives for 2017. It is our view at NotionPath that the #1 challenge for businesses in 2017 will be Attraction and Retention of their People.
You most likely have seen this list before. The Question is, do you have a strategy in place to address these challenges.

Are you giving a People Centric focus to your Key Objectives, to Culture, to finding and building differentiators to to be wildly competitive in your space? It starts with attention on your people.
“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.” – Simone Weil
Developing effective leaders and team members is the linchpin of every business. Culture is a HUGE opportunity to create differentiators. This requires an investment in time and attention. An investment that should yield a clear ROI.
