“Great leaders create more leaders.”

 – Roy T. Bennett

Readying an organization’s emerging leaders to take on larger roles and eventually succeed current leadership has always been thought of as prudent – now such initiatives are considered essential and engaging. Simon Leadership Group has helped many clients navigate the vital, tricky path of succession development.

Succession planning and development of future leaders are critical components of any organization’s long-term success. However, shaping an effective succession plan can be both complex and time-consuming, and the (often-overlooked) leader development actions require even more dedicated investment of energy and attention.

Engaging Simon Leadership Group to coach you through succession can enhance the process by providing:

  • Objective perspective: though we are usually outsiders to your industry or sector, we can provide an unbiased, impartial perspective, helping identify both opportunities and potential blind spots.
  • Specialized experience: we’ve helped many for-profit and non-profit organizations specifically with succession, plus we include growing next leaders as part of every coaching engagement. So we’ve experienced a wide range of situations, developed best practices, and proven strategies.
  • Customized solutions: while we have processes and tools that are consistently part of our succession engagements, no two organizations are alike.  We pride ourselves on shaping customized succession plan that is tailored to each client’s unique needs, culture, and goals.
  • Added focus: a comprehensive succession process from plan through implementation requires significant time and resources. Engaging external recan free up internal resources to focus on other critical areas of the business.
  • Smoother transitions: A well-conceived and executed succession plan helps to ensure a smooth transition of leadership and minimize threats to the organization’s continuing success. We’re committed to promoting effective implementation and successful transition.
