Best Practices in Succession Planning

Image converted using ifftoanyIn the era of increased competition for leadership talent, smart companies are focusing their attention on identifying where their next generation of leaders will come from. These organizations identify the key roles they will need to fill, work to uncover potential in their current employees and focus development efforts on their high potential candidates.  As a result, they are better prepared than their competition for the challenges of competition, growth and change.

Join Bob Grace and Rik Nemanick, principals of The Leadership Effect, for an overview of best practices in succession planning.  Bob and Rik will share observations drawn from their experience helping many organizations find the best ways to plan for the future.


Attendance is free, but seating is limited, so please RSVP.
