Succession Planning: Developing Your Bench Strength

Planning for both the foreseen and unexpected absences of people who hold key roles in an organization is a task which employers often avoid or engage in only in an informal manner. Worse yet, we sometimes limit the planning to the “C-Suite.”

Does that sound like your organization?

Without concentrated effort on succession planning, a business that has been successful can quickly fail if one or more of its key employees is lost.

Succession planning has to be a priority for every business and should be part of its strategic business plan.

In this video of a seminar I presented at last year’s NAHRO National Conference, you’ll gain a broad knowledge of how to develop a succession plan for all levels of key employees. I cover:

1. The Business Case for Succession Planning
2. The 7 Deadly Signs (of a faltering SP system)
3. Succession Planning meets Leadership Development
4. Top 10 Ways to Strategically Build Your Bench Strength
5. Implementation Strategies for Today’s Economy

We will identify current business trends that impact Succession Planning and learn how to recognize them in your organization. We’ll also conduct a mock succession plan activity that will require participants to rate an employee’s readiness to assume additional responsibility.
