Preparing for Succession

Rochelle Clarke

Global Strategist,

Founder of Succession Strength

Succession is a process. It’s not a matter of handing over a title, a bunch of documents or an entire department or business. When succession is done well, organizations become more resilient in changing times and employees become more united towards the long-term vision.

However, most businesses struggle to find the right successor. Or their selected successor might be unmotivated, incompetent or just never ready. 

So… what can we do to make a succession successful? What do we need to consider if we want to hand over a business or role to our successor?
