In many organizations, the term “succession planning” is so loaded that it prevents people from engaging in effective dialog about the future needs of the business and the talent available to meet those needs. Among current executives, and especially during time like this of unprecedented change, succession planning invokes fear that their skills and experiences are no longer relevant. Among employees hungry for more development and mobility, succession planning is viewed as a “black box,” lacking in transparency and reeking of favoritism. Let’s be honest, most succession planning initiatives are met with skepticism, cynicism, and even sabotage. They have become check-the-box exercises or are avoided all-together, preventing companies from critically assessing talent and planning adequately for the future. 

Join this session for a candid discussion on succession planning and what strategies will successfully engage senior management during this new normal of business and meet the evolving leadership development needs of employees and organizations alike.

  • 7 trends disrupting traditional succession planning models
