Succession Planning

The transition of a leader can stun an organization. Beyond the emotional toll, organizations without succession plans will feel the financial and operational effects of that transition, potentially weakening the entire organization.

Whether an organization leader’s transition is expected or unexpected, organizations without succession plans are typically left to teams ill-equipped and ill-prepared to move over.

Succession planning empowers organizations to plan for leadership changes, prepare individuals to assume new leadership roles, and focus on the organization’s long-term success.

Preparing for the Future Protects Your Organization

Succession planning informs an organization as to how to welcome and equip its next generation of leaders. Specifically, the plan identifies critical positions within the organization and develops an action plan to fill those roles in the future.

At Britton Consulting, we help organizational leaders create clear succession plans so the organization is prepared for a leadership change, whenever or however it should occur. We work directly with founders and owners, as well as entire management teams, to develop proactive succession management plans so your organization and team are protected.

What to Expect from Our Succession Planning Services

We start by examining the current state of your organization’s leadership structure. Next, we identify how succession planning currently fits within your organization and evaluate the talent base for future leadership opportunities. Then, we work together to develop a cohesive succession plan for long-term success.

No two organizations are the same and neither are any two succession plans. Our team will help you create a clear path for succession and put your organization in a position of strength today and in the future.
