In this video, Sid Bala, the president and CEO of Chicago-based software development company Alligatortek, discusses what he's learned about goal-setting and talent retention.

Bala describes the importance of setting short-term goals as a way to achieve long-term goals -- and of being realistic about what you and your team can get done in a given quarter.

The biggest challenge that Bala says Alligatortek has faced is retaining talent. The key, he explains, is to provide people with mentorship opportunities so that they may scale their careers within your company. To attract great talent in the first place, Bala says, you must have a clear sense of your company's vision and purpose -- and what differentiates you from the competition.
