No success without a successor


Your successes in your position should last beyond your tenure. Here are some practical ways to invest in someone on your leadership team to develop them for succession:

  • Model integrity and character
  • Ask them about their challenges and aspirations and then give support
  • Encourage them regularly
  • Give them honest feedback with an immediate suggestion for improvement when necessary
  • Share the “why” behind your decision-making
  • Designate a 15-30 minute meeting time each week to build your relationship
