As a business owner it is important that you have in your mind a clear succession plan to ensure that the company reputation and legacy lives on once you have retired or moved to pastures new.
One way in which you can ensure a continuity of approach is to have a clear leadership plan in place; a plan that includes the training of future leaders from existing staff members.
Teach Specific Company Ethos – In order for continuity to take place when new leadership personnel come into position there has to be a clear strategy, voice and belief throughout the management structure as a whole. A leadership training programme can be tailored to fit your exact needs as a company to ensure this takes place.
Teach How to Speak to Different Crowds – Whether you are talking to an individual as part of an employee review process, encouraging a small team to boost performance levels, presenting to a board room with new policy and product ideas, or speaking to large numbers of people at a conference, good leaders are confident in their ability to speak clearly and effectively.
Teach Confidence in Ability – Confidence is inherent in some individuals, but it is something that can be coaxed out of people that show great promise in terms of future leadership. Those that learn to be confident in all aspects of a leadership role will have a head start.
