These days developing your own talent allows you to keep good staff, attract more good staff and save money and disruption when senior people leave – opportunities that result in improved workplaces and bottom line. The problem is, you have to know how to get started, what to do first, how to make decisions about key roles, who to develop, how to manage the programme etc etc.
- Are not sure if succession planning is right for their organization
- Don't know what aspect of succession to focus on
- Are not sure which roles they need to find successors for
- Don't know how to select successors, what to say to them, or what to say to the people not selected
- Don't know how to develop successors so they 'seamlessly' move into the next role
So Jenni has written a clear and comprehensive e-guide to solve these problems, and probably in just a couple of hours! Unlike some other books on succession planning this is written by a practitioner. It is easy to read and makes the concepts involved easy to understand. I developed the content in the guide for people actually working in organisations, like you. You see, I have spent over a decade designing and running succession programmes in organisations. I have designed and taught many leadership programmes and have assessed managers and others for their future potential.
And furthermore, Jenni asked some colleagues to peer review this guide to make sure it reads well and is easy to follow. Here's what Heather Dodge, Global Leadership Manager at GHD says -
"...it is a succinct comprehensive guide to succession planning. I specifically liked the explanation of key roles as in my experience this is the biggest blocker for progress. Particularly liked the tip on page 25, the clearest explanation I've seen on that topic!"
