From Best Practices
Jump to: navigation, search

Develop a system to identify next generation leaders and managers. Build specific annual plans to develop each person. Identify the skills, knowledge sets and experiences each person needs. Find opportunities for them to grow. Post jobs internally. Lateral moves can provide growth opportunities. Each leader and manager should understand that part of his job is “replacing himself.” Realizing they cannot move up without a qualified replacement is a motivating epiphany.
