When talented people change jobs they seek challenge, interesting work, the opportunity to learn and grow, and an environment (culture/fit) within which they can achieve .
They see their prospective manager as being key in helping ensure that they continue their track record of achievement.
They seek a manager who like them is an achiever, someone who they can learn from and someone who has a track record of mentoring, nurturing and developing people.
In the process of people looking for or considering a new job it is not usual for them to “check out” their prospective manager, both though their own networks and from their on-line research. Their findings can often be the difference between them continuing with the recruitment process or pulling out.
