    Succession Planning Using a One Page Talent Matrix

    Succession planning and identifying high potential employees can be a difficult and complicated job.  You’ve invested greatly in your hiring and now your company’s ability to thrive in the marketplace depends on your organization’s skill in identifying and developing your top talent, which often requires significant commitments of time and money. What if there was a simple, straightforward template that would accelerate your company’s ability to identify its next group of leaders, enable more intra-departmental promotions, and discover gaps in performance sooner? Would you be interested?  This session offers a one-page template and advice on how to easily and successfully align talent with the vision of your company, support employee development, and guarantee your company has a leadership plan in place for continued growth!

    Learning objectives:

    • Discover how to conduct manager training and calibration meetings in order to complete the 1 page matrix.
    • Uncover how to plot your employees on a three by three grid measured on performance and potential.
    • Learn how to successfully create developmental activities for your high potential employees.
