DENVER and ATLANTA, April 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaimana Publishing's new release, Who Comes Next? Leadership Succession Planning Made Easy, by Mary Kelly and Meridith Elliott Powell help entrepreneurs and business professionals build their leadership bench and plan for a seamless and drama-free transition of top and middle-level talent.
With over sixty combined years of experience leading teams in the military and in the corporate world, Kelly and Powell share the actual forms, tools, and templates they use when they walk organizations through planning for the future.
In Who Comes Next? Kelly and Powell combine strategic planning, tactical action steps, and real-life case studies to guide C-suite leaders, board members, and business owners through the critical process of planning for leadership transitions.
The reality is that leaders leave, either because they will retire, they experience health challenges, they get hired elsewhere, or they are removed. Fewer than 20% of American companies claim they have an effective plan for succession. Kelly and Powell want to change that.
Early chapters focus on the often unintended consequences leadership changes have on other senior leaders, mid-level managers, employees, and customers when planning is poor or nonexistent.
Kelly and Powell then explore CEO mindsets, both those who want to leave and those who don't. They show how leaders and board members can think about succession positively to plan for future, long-term success. Every chapter includes a summary at the end with the next logical step with Actions, Tools, and Resources.
Unlike other entrepreneurship books, Kelly and Powell want leaders to plan for their own obsolescence and a future of success when they are not around.
For organizations and corporations that struggle with finding, recruiting developing, and keeping top talent, Who Comes Next? is the guide. Kelly and Powell have worked with thousands of employees and leaders who situation, and into their dream job.
