Leadership Succession Planning
A leadership succession strategy is a valuable tool to grow future leaders and to ensure continuous development within a shifting global economy. Success by succession planning is an investment that business leaders are recognizing as an important strategy in achieving the long-term vision of their organization.
Despite the growing awareness that succession planning is an essential process with numerous benefits, a recent study titled Effective Succession Management (EFS) found that only one per cent of surveyed organizations rated their succession-management plans as "excellent" and as much as two-thirds described them as "fair or worse."
We recommend using our Leadership Series as the basis for your Leadership Succession Training.
Level One: Foundations of Leadership
During the Foundation of Leadership modules, we will expose you to the skills sets that everyone needs in order to be self-directed. You can be a powerful agent for change, an influencer during the adoption of a new initiative, or a model of productivity and commitment.
- The Leader’s Role in Stages of Team Development
- Communication & Leadership
- Project Management
Level Two: Team Leadership
Your role as a leader changes once you have direct reports. To guide a team, you must learn how to facilitate group processes in order to streamline work flow, minimize interpersonal conflict and align with organizational goals. The modules of Team Leadership facilitate a shift from practicing skills to learning how to teach these skill sets to others.
Level Three: Organizational Leadership
The third tier of The AAI Leadership Series is Organizational Leadership. While the first tier focused on mastering skills, and the second tier focused on facilitating the use of those skills with teams, the top tier is about self-mastery. Know yourself. Express yourself. Control yourself. Control your interactions with others.
