Key Quotes:

  • “We have to understand that losing a top performer could be one of the largest threats to our agency. And our SWOT should include all the things that threaten to shake our top performer’s confidence, stretch them too thin, or leave them with too vague an idea of where to go from here.” – Katlyn Eggar
  • “Top performers can feel like the agency is counting on them. They take pride in their work, but that means they have to make sacrifices. Maybe sometimes you even wondered if it was worth it.” – Katlyn Eggar
  • “A successful person who is burned out can feel like a failure. And, a high achiever who feels like a failure at your agency will eventually find a place where they feel like they’re on top of the world.” – Katlyn Eggar
