How to Start the Discussion on Succession Planning

In order to plan ahead for the future and reduce the possibility of problems down the line, you need to think about what you want to happen to your business. The most difficult part of this process is planning the initial conversation and avoiding any excuses or reasons to put this off. Business Succession0915

When you set aside the time to talk with relevant family members or stakeholders, do not let anyone convince you that the conversation should be pushed off or dealt with later. Once you make the commitment to think about the future of the company, stick to it.

It’s essential, though, that you do have buy-in from the people at the top of the company. Your current leaders should already be assuming key roles within the company and that they participate in the process of identifying additional talent and building the structures for the company to exchange hands in the future.

Finally, be sure to hold yourself accountable. As the figurehead, the responsibilities should trickle down to your other employees, but you must be willing to show that this is your commitment instead of just saying that it is. Outlining your goals in an official statement or your company’s strategic documents helps keep you on track with this. Ready to get started but not sure how? Contact us:
