Keep Your People Is Out!

I'm happy to announce that Keep Your People — The Startup Manager's Guide to Retention is available for purchase right now!

I started writing KYP roughly a year ago, when I realised that I had developed a framework for predicting departures in my team, that other managers found useful. So I started thinking that it might be cool to put this into a book, for others to read and use.

You may buy it here at $25 for an individual license, or $55 for a corporate license! These prices are 10% off for 7 days, because launch.

FAQ: what's the difference? Well, the individual license is if you're buying it for yourself, and the corporate license is if you're in a startup and you want to buy the book for all the managers in your company. Apart from that there are no differences; both versions have the exact same ebook formats and are DRM free (I trust you, and anyway DRM sucks).

So what's in the book? Here's the full list of chapters:

  1. An Introduction
  2. Reason One: Personal Growth Matters
  3. Reason Two: Autonomy is Non-Negotiable
  4. Reason Three: How Work Fits Into Their Lives
  5. Reason Four: Compensation: How Does Money Affect Retention?
  6. Reason Five: Does Having a Mission Matter?
  7. Reason Six: The Relationship With Their Peers and With Their Boss
  8. A Conclusion
  9. Appendix 1: One-on-Ones, The Secret Tool for Retention
  10. Appendix 2: Sample Career Ladder for Software Engineers

Now go forth and never fear a teammate leaving, ever again!
