The success of an organization depends heavily on its people—particularly its leaders. When an executive, manager, or team leader moves on or transitions to a new role, the gap must be filled quickly and smoothly. Failure to plan for these changes can significantly impact the business. Identifying and developing individuals to step into new roles when the time arises, allows organizations to continue operations with minimal disruption. Eagle's Flight's new resources detail how businesses can develop succession plans to ensure a seamless transition. The resources are:
Cultivating Organizational Leaders: This SlideShare presentation answers questions executives may have about succession planning and offers advice for gaining buy-in from the executive team, evaluating ROI, and leading with authenticity and core values.
Executive's Guide to Succession Planning and Building Your Leadership Pipeline: This guide details the steps for creating a succession plan to identify and develop leaders. Topics examined include identifying high-potentials, developing a leadership track, and measuring results.
"When we ask executives what keeps them up at night, more often than not, it is their leadership pipeline," says John Wright, President of Leadership Development at Eagle's Flight. "Many organizations have succession plans for certain executives, but what about the line managers, department heads, and team leaders? Planning ahead when selecting and cultivating new leaders will make transitional times much smoother for all involved. Our new resources give executives the knowledge as to why succession planning is crucial for future success, as well as a practical blueprint that outlines how to make it a reality."
