You may have heard me spouting off about aligning the aspirations of workers with the organizations they work for. This falls on deaf ears in North America and most of Europe where we mistakenly think treating workers as humans intrudes on their privacy.
In fact, getting worker aspirations clear (What do I want in life?) is the basis for fulfilling work, reduced turnover, self-development, and a bunch of other things.
