You shouldn’t just be checking boxes.
Imagine what would happen if your CEO was to disappear right this very moment. Would the person you’ve selected to take his or her place be able to perform to the current standard today? Chances are, the answer is no. Your leadership pipeline shouldn’t consist of a spreadsheet, fill-in-the-blank analysis of who will fill roles should they become vacant. Developing your leadership pipeline should be a living process wherein candidates for future leadership roles are not only selected, but developed to acquire and finesse the skills that will be necessary to take on the added responsibility.
Groom them for leadership.
Make sure you know exactly what is required of your current leaders. This could include necessary skills, pertinent experience, personality compatibility, and much more. Once you have a picture of the ideal candidate, you can begin to comb your ranks to find an appropriate replacement. This will not be a polished, “finished” candidate. They will require training and leadership development to cultivate their qualifications, requiring an investment of months and even years. But if the employee has not performed in this capacity before, how can you know with certainty that the investment is wise?
Discover hidden potential.
