Syd Finkelstein’s Big Idea

Syd Finkelstein, a professor at the Tuck School of Business of Dartmouth College, discusses his Thinkers50 Big Idea: talent retention may make you worse off instead of better off.

Your biggest talents, who are capable of broad creative projects, may not be able to stay with you forever. They want to venture out and start their own businesses, and expand their knowledge even further. You can either fight their urge to explore, or support it. Professor Finkelstein goes so far as to suggest that you should help them find their next job.
