Dorothy Dalton blogs that the stats on the level of engagement in all organizations come out overwhelmingly against the boss. 66% seems to be a standard figure for disengaged employees, so let us work around that. It starts with the top employee who can bail fastest and more easily than the others. Then it trickles downwards, so that means losing your team will be the next step.

Jane Banks, of Stratum, opines that despite the emergence of niche job boards, social network ubiquity and career management apps, our research of 1,200 mining professionals found it is still who you know that a matters most when it comes to finding a new role. Nevertheless, leaders looking for a step change may want to consider a wider range of options.
