Overview:

Succession planning is not just naming the new CEO. In fact, it's not about putting a name behind a title at all. That is called replacement planning. And when it is only used during times of crisis - when a company must name somebody to fill a vacant role quickly - that’s not succession planning either. That is crisis management.

The goal of succession planning is to continuously identify and develop high-performers capable of meeting the present and future needs of the organization. It should include a formal identification process supported by leadership development that builds leadership capacity within the organization.

Organizations are only as strong as their leaders. High performing organizations make leadership development, at all levels, a top priority. So how does your organization shape up? Which of the top best practices from high performance companies are being used in your organization to develop leaders? Which of these practices should you consider adopting to develop your future leaders?

This webinar will cover these key areas for effective succession planning.
  • How to identify your potential leaders who can assume greater responsibility in the organization
  • The variety and impact of various development experiences to those that can move into key roles
  • How to engage the leadership in supporting the development of high-potential leaders

The heart of succession planning is to identify and build your future leadership at all levels. Through your succession planning process, you recruit superior employees, develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities, and prepare them for advancement into ever more challenging roles.
