Overview : Succession Planning & Leadership Development : Session 1

Every organization, regardless of its size, needs succession planning. Harvard Business Review stated that the CEO succession process is broken in the U. S. and around the world. This results in poor performance followed by higher turnover and corporate instability. But organizations need to be thinking broader than just CEO succession – they need to dig deeper into the organization when thinking “succession.” As labor shortages increase, succession planning and leadership development require strategic initiatives requiring rigorous consideration. Organizations must move away from the “replacement” mindset to measuring success long term. Are the right people moving at the right pace into the right jobs at the right time? Attention should be directed to capturing the intellectual capital that exists within the organization and developing leadership candidates.

In this webinar speaker will Discuss leadership development as a fundamental element of succession planning, A succession plan is a road map for future leadership at an organization, including direction about how internal talent will be developed, The Succession Planning and Leadership Development Toolkit is a key component of the “Our People, Our Strength” plan - the guiding strategy for shaping the County into a workplace that recruits and retains high quality employees.

Why Should You Attend:

How does your organization address succession planning – or doesn’t it? Some organizations merely have informal conversations as to who should be promoted into what jobs without addressing the broader long-term approach of higher level succession. These informal tactics usually fail to ensure strong stability within the organization. More formal strategies for succession planning are warranted to support the organization going forward into the future.

Are you constantly developing your employees for talent mobility and leadership? Do you know key employees that demonstrate the kind of knowledge and skill needed for your organization to succeed in a challenging market? Do you offer career planning for employees? What development opportunities do you provide? Do you provide lateral development opportunities? What about assigning new challenging project assignments meant to build necessary skills? These and other strategies will be addressed in this webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify where in the organizational structure succession planning should begin
  2. Discuss leadership development as a fundamental element of succession planning
  3. Describe leadership development tools, opportunities, and activities
  4. Distinguish the roles of those involved in succession planning


Overview: Challenging Situations At Work : Session 2

What do you think of when you think of – communication? How adept are you at communicating with others? Do you ever wish you could say “No” and not feel guilty? Do you and your spouse seem to be speaking in two different languages? And, how about that boss of yours – always disrespectful and rude – how do you deal with that?
Communication skills are important in working and living together effectively. Whether we are communicating with coworkers, team members, and customers or with family and friends, communication plays a pivotal role in your relationships with others.

 Most people want to avoid conflict and potentially stressful situations – this is human nature. People often find it easier to avoid communicating something that they think is going to be controversial or bad, putting off the communication and letting the situation fester.

It can sometimes be a challenge to convey messages to others, particularly when what we need or want to say is difficult. Are you able to do so with respect? Do you tend to be aggressive? Or are you someone who tends to be more passive and avoid confronting someone else? What is the difference among aggressive, passive, and assertive? Or maybe you wear a T-shirt that says on the front of the shirt, “I don’t get mad,” and on the back of the shirt it says, “I get even!”

Learner Outcomes:

  • Recognize your “self” as the tool of your communication
  • Discuss the essential communication skills of listening and paraphrasing
