Create a succession plan

How should all businesses and organizations prepare for the future?  A thoughtful succession plan is the answer.  Here are some steps that companies can take to look at their bench strength and transition to the future:

  • Build the team–create better working relationships to improve both individual and team performance.
  • Assess the current team and ensure you have the right team members  – ensure that everyone fits into your group.  Develop key members of your teams with educational and leadership development opportunities.
  • Analyze the organization internally and externally & create a plan – Look at your organization and its fit, within the company as a whole and also within your industry.
  • Inspire others with your vision – owners should be able to depict the future vision of the organization in an inspirational manner.
  • Identify and leverage the best advisors –  Coaches provide balanced advice to the transitioning leader and help to validate your game plan.
