Succession Planning

 

How do you maintain the elite workforce you have now, for years to come?

Succession Planning

It’s no secret that tomorrow’s organizational success is dependent on putting the right leaders in the right roles at the right time. Yet, studies show that most companies don’t have a formalized succession plan in place – lack of planning can be detrimental to a business. Boards and leaders of organizations know the value in effective planning but the question commonly arises … where do we start?

In this workshop, you’ll learn a framework for building a more diverse leadership pipeline with an unbiased identification process. We’ll explore four key anchors in shaping the succession planning process – the organization’s external environment, strategic priorities, behavioural fit, and cognitive agility and align on target benchmarks. We will review incumbent profiles, share benefits and considerations of each, and co-design transition requirements. You’ll come away from this session feeling confident about decisions, ready to have the necessary conversations with talent, and energized to drive a transition plan forward.
