Smart leaders empower their people to thrive beyond their own organization. | InspireHUB


It's pretty simple. If you decide to value and respect your people above ALL else, you will have a thriving and healthy culture because you will attract talented people.

Not all of them will stay with you.

At InspireHUB, we empower people that have future dreams that don't necessarily include us.  Here's why attracting talent that might not stay can still be a win.


Here's what I learned about empowering talent that might leave.

For some people, our company will be their landing pad, but for others, it will be a launchpad as they go after the big dreams in their life. We're excited to be with talented people, even if it's just for a little while on their journey.

Years ago, one of my mentors shared this principle with me. He explained there were two types of leaders. There are those who want a steady stream of top talent, even if it means they are just passing through on their way to other things. There are others who are afraid of their top talent having dreams besides "the company." They try to keep them at all costs, but in doing so, they risk stagnation.

I've noticed that when people are FREE to express their aspirations (no matter what they may be), they are more engaged while they are with you. If they do launch outwards, they become amazing ambassadors.

I know this because it's how I feel about the leaders who helped me launch.
