  14. 14. Want to learn more about retaining staff? Call Pathway on 0121 707 0550 or visit www.elearning.pathwaycourses.co.uk Managers should be coaches  The ability of your managers to coach team members rather than dictating jobs and moving on will be the difference between a motivated and engaged member of staff and a disillusioned one.  Being able to guide and help staff find their best skills and talents gives both the company and the individual the best opportunity to succeed.
