Most managers view their employees as a resource. What kind of work can I get out of them? How can the employee help meet deadlines? How can I maximize the worth of this employee? All those questions are valid. But in order to retain your employees, you need to see matters from their viewpoint. Think of your employee as your trusted friend. You always want to support your friends, and yet at times, you must be honest with them and explain what they've done wrong. It's the same with your employees. As long as they know you respect them, are on their side, and can provide them with challenging opportunities that stretch their talents, you will retain them.
