People Succession: the Value, the Process, the Challenges and More   

with Carol Bergeron

Thursday, September 18, 2014

6:00pm to 8:30pm


Building the next generation of leaders through people succession involves proactive risk management, builds a foundation for sustainable growth, and is personally very rewarding!

So why is people succession often under-valued and under-resourced?

Reasons commonly cited include:

Daily operations required to run a business are all consuming
People succession is only for large companies
Too great a reliance on recruiting talent from the external pool
The perceived drain of time and money in developing people

These views and more prevent countless companies from embracing and reaping the many rewards of people succession.


Join us for a lively interactive session during which Carol, and the Vice President of Human Resources of one of her client companies, will lead discussion on: 

  • What prompts organizations to do people succession
  • The value and benefits of people succession
  • The 7 step process Carol uses to accelerate implementation
  • Strategies for addressing challenges to implementation

Carol will also raffle off two complimentary copies of her new book People Succession: Lessons from Forward Thinking Executives in Middle-Market Companies.


Listen to Carol's interview with Paul Jensen of The Writer's Cafe. Learn about and buy Carol's book. Read more about the people succession process.
