People Succession - Must Read Book!

People Succession: Lessons from Forward Thinking Executives in Middle-Market Companies, by Carol Bergeron, is a must read for executives, the board of directors, and people managers in middle-market and aspiring middle-market companies who want to proactively groom the next generation of leaders while reducing the risk of organizational underperformance due to job vacancies and capabilities’ shortages.        

This succinct read is tailored to today’s busy business leaders and:

• Starts with 3 scenarios of an organization with a promising path for growth. The first scenario assumes business strategy execution without incident. The second scenario shows the economic dip over a 5 year period resulting from the unexpected departure of a key executive. The third scenario shows how the initial loss of the key executive snowballs into dramatically disappointing organizational results over a 5 year horizon.  

• Is loaded with first-hand experiences shared by 25+ executives in middle-market companies interviewed for the book who currently do succession planning and reap its many benefits (i.e. peer learning in print).

• Provides a road map of the 7 steps involved in the people succession process in addition to time saving tips.

• Identifies the top 9 derailers to people succession and how to address them.

• Reveals sensible approaches used by busy executives when preparing people for future responsibilities.

• The book explains why companies that rely too heavily on recruiting from the external candidate pool put business strategy execution at risk.

• Speaks to CEO succession, board issues, and the monitoring of key performance indicators for determining if your people succession works.
