Our MANAGEMENT MAGICIANS™ series is dedicated to those exceptional few who step forward to serve as guides, sages and responsible parties for others in pursuit of the greater good for society and their organization! These are managers who redefine their job titles to ensure their own personal contentment as they motivate, monitor and mentor their team members each day. The “magic” that a talented manager is able to create changes their lives, the lives of their team members and ripples throughout the larger society. We salute their sacrifices and share their techniques and “secrets” to achieving sustained positive experiences for themselves, clients, customers, peers, team members, and the public at large! 

In this episode our topic is, “SUPERSTARS!! How to make them stay and not burn-out!”

 Burnout: “the condition of someone who has become very physically and emotionally tired after doing a difficult job for a long time" (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

What is a “Superstar” employee? The best. “A players” who increase output and productivity. 

“The direct benefits of a superstar can be substantial, but it’s also important to consider how the hire will effect other employees’ productivity. […] [R]esearchers found that the superstar’s impact on recruiting was far and away the more significant driver of improved organizational productivity.” (Harvard Business Review at http://blogs.hbr.org/2014/04/the-big-reason-to-hire-superstar-employees-isnt-the-work-they-do/). 

So, if you have one, how do you keep them? How do you keep them sane? Superstars either: 1) Burnout, 2) Leave, or 3) Stay (sane and satisfied).

How do you achieve the third option? Let’s discuss!
