Despite calls louder than ever, particularly over the last two years, from employees and consumers for more diversity and inclusion, the lack of both in our business, government, and other institutions continues unabated. From #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite to accusations of groupthink in big tech and nationalism in politics, people are demanding accountability. In the succession space. organizations think they want someone different, but when the moment of truth arrives they get cold feet. Why? Because they weren’t a “fit.” What made them not a fit? It could be any number of intangible, indescribable, factors.
This workshop will cover approaches to thinking about succession and fit. During this pre-conference workshop you’ll learn about:
- Redefining and expanding the hiring for fit concept
- Exploring how to separate real requirements in the succession process from merely a preference
- How to create a road map to ensure your succession system includes business imperative fit, complementary fit and future fit
