One of the most important tasks of a leader is to assure continuity of effective leadership. Succession planning is critical in a time of budget stress and extreme predictability. The fact is effective, dependable leadership for this generation and the next is indispensible - precisely because of the insecurity inherent in today's environment. It is of paramount importance to seek out and cultivate a corps of leaders capable of taking the helm in an organization that fully understands its mission and accomplishes it at the highest level of performance.
This one-hour, web-based discussion will serve as an indispensible primer for embarking on leadership development within your own agency or organization. The tools shared in this discussion will be practical and wide-ranging, as you aspire to build a team that will maintain its vibrancy and viability beyond your tenure—a team ready not only to adapt to change but to create the change that will energize its mission into an unrelenting future.
Attendees of this webinar will learn about and discuss…
• Integrating succession planning into an overall organizational and human capital strategy – capable of sustaining effective leadership 
• Designing and implementing a development and mentoring program that cultivates essential leadership skills like decision-making, listening, negotiation, knowledge transfer, conflict resolution, and managing change and diversity 
• Nurturing an organizational culture that supports the visibility and cultivation of high potential individuals and future leaders 
• Feedback, insight, and assessment tools—and how best use these tools to assist the selection process and craft an incisive, individualized development program
• Strategies to best identify, cultivate, train, and retain potential leaders within the organization 
• The value of diversity in a succession process that is not blind to the range of talent and potential in the organization
This one-hour, web-based discussion will examine the processes, tools, and instruments you can use to assess your workforce and then identify individuals with the potential to become a part of the next generation of transformational leadership. We do hope you’ll join us!
