High achievers can be challenged with increased responsibility, access to new assignments, new training, and job rotation. Look at a high achiever’s position and the associated tasks. How can they be changed to make the position an opportunity for growth? Redesigning the work may satisfy the needs not only of the high achiever but also of your organization. Skills improve along with knowledge of the organization, which can stimulate ideas for more efficient and effective operations. Training is another valuable perk that can be used to motivate. Finally, you might want to have one of your peers or, better yet, a senior executive act as a mentor. It’s another way to tie your high achiever to your organization in a way that will benefit your organization.
