Companies that don’t have effective succession planning strategies in place often find themselves having gaps in their key leadership team, with no possibility of promoting someone from within. This often occurs not because there isn’t anyone qualified, but because the company hasn’t taken the time to determine who on their staff has the potential and desire – to move up or started preparing such individuals to do so.
Join Mary White, MA, in this session to establish a formal mentoring and training program for developing future leaders. When you find yourself in the position of having to look outside for key leaders simply because you did not bother to develop your internal talent, you end up running the risk of bringing in someone who may have the skills that you need and who “looks good on paper” – but just is not an appropriate fit for the culture of your organization. Doing so can result in significant culture and morale problems.
Additionally, when you fail to provide a formal way for ambitious employees to throw their hat in the proverbial ring for leadership opportunities, you may end up losing your people who have the greatest potential. That’s because talented workers who want to advance are just not likely to stay in jobs where they see the company failing to groom the next generation of leaders and where they see top positions being filled externally without even giving consideration to incumbent workers.
