The Power of Leadership Succession

27 Feb

Ruminating about 28 years of consulting with organizations of all types, I noticed an interesting fact. With one exception, I have never been in an organization with an effective ongoing leadership succession process. A few leaders talk about it but almost no one does anything about it.

Today we are seeing the beginning of a generational change in leadership all across organizations.  The “baby boomers” are leaving the work force.

Consider this article, it presents a model which embeds leadership succession in the process of organizational improvement.  Maybe you know a colleague who might want to consider this, if so please forward.
