5 Reasons Creative People Leave Their Job

“The Great Resignation”. That’s what they’re calling the re-shuffling that’s happening across many industries right now. Over the past few years, I’ve worked closely with a number of companies and have discovered that there are five key reasons why many creative people are choosing to leave their job right now, even when it’s not in their own best interest to do so. On this episode, I share these five reasons, and offer some practical advice both for managers and creative pros about how to deal with them.

  1. Overly Controlling Manager
  2. No Clear Path of Advancement
  3. Organization Is Out Over Its Skis
  4. Toxic Culture
  5. They Are Not Seen/Known
