Incorporating Strategic Succession Planning At Workplace

Companies that usually don’t have effective succession planning strategies in its place, oftentimes find themselves having frequent gaps in their chief leadership team, with absolutely no possibility of promoting someone from within. This often occurs not because there is no one qualified enough, but because the company hasn’t taken the requisite time so as to determine who on their staff actually has the potential and desire – to move up or started preparing such individuals to do so.

Plus, when you totally fail to provide a new and formal way for ambitious employees to throw their hat in the proverbial ring for leadership opportunities, you might end up losing your precious people who have the greatest potential. That happens because talented workers who want to advance are just not likely to stay put in jobs where they see the company failing to groom the next generation of leaders and also, where they see top positions being filled externally without even giving consideration to incumbent workers.

Attendees will be:

  • Identifying team members who have the potential to step up to leadership roles within the company with proper preparation and training
  • Encouraging buy-in among current members of the leadership team regarding the importance of succession planning
  • Getting current leaders to clearly see the role they play in setting the tone for future leadership through the examples they set as well as through their willingness to coach, mentor and nurture team members
