Presentation Summary:

Following the recent years of economic instability, organizations and their top
executives are placing greater value on succession planning efforts. An organization's
ability to correctly identify and develop leaders with the talent to move forward over time
can make or break its future success. Succession Planning is critical in times of staff reduction
when High Potentials may inadvertently be downsized or, in times of financial stability, when undiscovered talent can be lost to the competition. However, typical succession plans often fall
short with a too-narrow focus on C-Level positions, identification processes that do not include
objective measures and little or no developmental opportunities to drive succession success.  

In this Webcast - presented by award-winning Organizational Psychologist and Leadership Expert Henry L. (Dick) Thompson, Ph.D. - HR and OD pros will learn how to avoid common succession planning mistakes, plus the eight steps needed to create a succession plan that really works.
