Do you have at least TWO people ready to take over your job if something happened to you? What about the other key roles in your organization?

Many executives spend so much time focusing on managing daily and quarterly results that they neglect one of the most important jobs that they have: Creating a pipeline of leaders. Winning companies put the same level of rigor into their people planning processes as they do their financial processes.

Having a weak pipeline of leaders is like a baseball team with no farm system, or a football team with no bench to fill in for injured or tired players. Your organization simply can’t win without a pipeline of leaders.

The answer is succession planning – but we are not talking about a one-time, annual or even twice a year event to plan successors for each role. Instead, you need to have an ongoing process, baked into your business, that constantly acquires, grows, and retains top talent throughout the organization. You should know what makes a good leader in your business, and be able to make sure those leaders are there.  Aim to Win brings extensive expertise in succession, talent planning and leadership development and can serve as an objective resource to help you assess your leadership, and then work with you to make sure that your organization has a strong pipeline of leaders in place. Aim to Win can also help you grow these leaders to allow them to hit their potential.  Once that happens, the benefits are tremendous:

  • Business growth increases, as you have the people ready to help the organization grow, and then run the larger business
  • You have a stronger team in place to handle the day to day operations of the business, giving you stronger current results
  • People have more opportunity to move up, leading to a loyal cadre of high performers
  • Your company becomes a magnet for top talent, because prospective employees know that they have opportunities to develop and advance.
