As the current generation of leaders marches toward retirement, many organisations are already finding it difficult to find qualified replacements. The challenge lies in both the numbers and experience; there simply aren’t as many workers as will be needed to fill vacated leadership slots, and those potential managers who are available will only bring 5-10 years experience with them.
One of the ways organisations are preparing is training existing frontline employees to take on larger roles as they grow with the organisation. This approach not only “future proofs” against a mass exit of experienced leadership, it gives organisations the ability to retain vital institutional knowledge, as well as attract and retain high-potential employees.
FranklinCovey’s Leadership Foundations work session prepares emerging leaders to take on significant roles and responsibilities in the future. Participants gain skills to improve trust and influence with peers and superiors, link their work to a clear and compelling team purpose, implement a system for executing on critical priorities, and leverage the talents of peers and co-workers to achieve unprecedented results.
