Succession Planning in Six Steps

Four out of five organizations are involved in succession planning, but for most the effort is unsophisticated and results are poor. This has to change. An aging workforce and widening skills gap means that identifying successors is more important than ever. To help get you on track, we show you a six-step succession-planning process.

Leverage Emotional Intelligence to Create Headspace for Leadership!

Leaders bring a whole host of emotions to the table as they direct their teams, and good leaders know how to manage these emotions. If you struggle, you can improve. The key is to focus on two critical actions: notice and acknowledge.

Engage Employees before They’re Hired

Highly engaged employees are important—they typically translate into increased productivity and profitability, reduced costs, and better quality. But focusing just on current employees is not enough. Creating a great place to work also means engaging with people who are not yet employees but who might like to be.
