You know in addition the literature speak and other. There's there 01 of them video ladies and yet totally true terrorist nation that went election year. There actually personalities who quit level there in New York City so there are a lot of these. You know. Passionate. You know written nations' statement that people do. That. You know I'm like yeah at least there and that costs and unit then you and your company cares enough to be Munich then you didn't tell them what drove away because suddenly intrigued noble people. They -- jobs because the ball political organ public -- -- To try to keep it can progress in the game. -- a matter of fact -- I don't I didn't really know that Chris so tell me why is it that most people leave even leave jobs today is because of better offers -- just. Lateral moves or even gone down because they don't like the conditions. The the biggest reason is because of a bad boss or their coworkers. -- most people understand that they do what they do because they've been doing for so long. And they just wanna do it in the place where they couldn't go to work -- -- and -- in the -- And of course competition comes into the united -- start looking mr. page opinion Debian been a market value that part of it but you know. -- clients -- have you know have lived up to date are happy who is. But they're kind of curious and they started looking and got some awfully good that they wouldn't -- because ultimately do electable they do electrical workers. And then put for the most part you know -- talked to the -- about what brought into the job. The big pregnant either the company -- -- other or they just can't take it anymore. What is sit com if you know anecdotally not to violate any confidences but some of the more common mistakes people make when they do leave one place to go to work for the out there. One thing that that a lot of people don't do some people don't do it really. Text and so do they wanna leave like a lot of times and it's an emotional. Decision and it's usually derived from. Situation somebody's really intimate. They -- the year but. Bet you -- that would easily compete so what I think it would com. Instances of regretted -- you know these exactly. And make it to work situation. Because you know they demand the right questions and interview. They didn't considered a long term what really happened that word. So -- yet the -- can remove the most one candidate that and so you know while toward one lead displaced. And couldn't situation and -- -- in better. But that doesn't but you know you -- -- those questions in the it's sort of like currently. Yet because you know I think it's the same way Chris when you buy cars sometimes you can. You know talk yourself into it when you try to list positives and negatives and you're not Rian. Really be an honest if you really want that car when you put the negatives down but you tend to -- list of positives and I would imagine it could be the same way again years like you say if you make a logical not a giving -- emotional battle logical decision well you know XYZ company they do this and they do that native that it solid it is here and only get over there it's mine it's worsened guests and the likelihood of give on that -- to where you left isn't that that doesn't happen often doesn't. Not too often -- mean it really depends -- you know -- -- what you're choked up about the -- view. If you if you emotional about the situation and decided to not move over to another company each you'll that you -- -- You wanna go back to -- of -- -- you left you know you go to great to lead -- he told everybody in the office you know whatever you want to tell them. You know that the -- that you -- and you have to. Open president in the situation that'll work out where you're going to be totally happy so. -- you know it really think about you know you'd you know credit to the carpet.
