    TOPIC:             Succession Planning: Who's On Your Bench?

    SPEAKER:       Emily Rogers, Emily Rogers Consulting

    HRCI Credits:   SHRM and HRCI credit(s)

    Summary:  In sports, there are always players ready to fill gaps created by injury, retirement, or poor performance. Baseball has an elaborate farm league system that constantly develops players for the big league, yet in business where the stakes are arguably higher, developing future leaders is often neglected. In fact, according to the DDI Global Leadership Forecast, 85% of companies don’t have the leadership bench strength needed to meet tomorrow’s business challenges. Companies rely on their leadership team to carry out their mission, create the corporate culture, and meet organizational goals. Without succession planning, it becomes impossible to fulfill the company’s vision when key leaders leave the organization. This presentation will illuminate the many factors that have contributed to the leadership void that organizations are facing and provide guidelines for preventing a future crisis in
    leadership succession.
