Identifying and Developing Leaders and Future Leaders…Yes, the Need for Succession Planning

There are no strong companies, without having strong current leaders and a strong bench of emerging leaders. Although this has always been true, never in recent history has the need for outstanding leaders been more acute than it is today. In today’s challenging economy, CEO’s and senior executive teams are facing enormous challenges when it comes to achieving and sustaining breakthrough operating results. Globalization, economic change, more stringent regulation, and tougher governance make realizing shareholder value increasingly difficult.

“When CEO’s and all leaders start displaying an equal or greater passion for wanting to achieve accuracy and objectivity in how they are seen as leaders compared to the passion they display for wanting to achieve accuracy and objectivity in the operations they manage, this will mark the beginning to the end of the world’s leadership crisis”…John Mattone

There are so many books and speeches/seminars on leadership, yet there are so few leaders. The demand for great leadership has never been higher. Today, the pace of change in business is dramatically faster than in earlier times. Top executives in firms today report fiercer competitive business environments and more globalized patterns of operations than ever. Technological advances continue to significantly impact both communication infrastructures and the strategic business decisions that executives make in terms of trade, resources, and competition.

There is nowhere to hide. Not even the executive suite is safe from the changes sweeping business today. In fact, the impact of those changes is felt most keenly at the executive level. CEO’s, COO’s, CFO’s, and senior VP’s—like everyone else—have to hit the ground running and keep running fast. Stockholders and stakeholders demand fast results. Teams must work more efficiently under greater pressure. Leaders at all levels need to be developed, and high-potential and emerging leaders need to be identified and developed earlier and more effectively.
