Employee loyalty to the firm
During the module there was this seminar about how to make employees loyal to the firm and not to the leader and I link the answer of that question is related to the organisation culture. If the organisation has a culture in which people's intrinsic motivations are addressed, people's carrer and personal grow fit within the organisation's goals, people is valued and recognised and there is respect for the individuals, people should be loyal to the firm. But there is loyalty to the firm because the aspects mentioned above come from the company, its policies, normes, etc., because they are embebed in the way the company lives day to day.
When is just a leader and no the company who provides the culture, then there is a risk that when the leader leaves, the people will want to leave the company too. I have heard about many cases in which when a good leader leaves he takes many of his followers to the new company with him, and for me this happens because it is he and no the company the one addressing the employee needs.
So the challenge here is to help our companies create the culture in which no matter what leaders leave, the people stay because they enjoy working here and they feel valued.
