Technology evolves at warp speed. So, more and more competent professionals are needed across many industries. As a result, retaining talent and keeping it motivated becomes a huge challenge for all types of teams, from small startups to large corporations. Often, even if an organization offers lots of perks, people may still leave.
If you go through your favorite memories, both personal and professional, the moments that you fondly remember and cherish are never dull or unenergetic.
On the contrary, those memorable moments were suspenseful. They entailed the element of surprise. They included exploration. They allowed us to have some type of control over an activity, to contribute and to see the effects of our actions, whether we failed or not. They made us feel part of a group or a movement. This thrilling sensation is an integral part of great design teams.
It’s not the challenge, bugs, necessary technical skills or the very process of problem-solving that scare people off: it’s dullness, communication problems, lack of control and lack of interest.
