A leader's greatest challenge can be knowing when it's time to step aside. How do you prepare yourself, your successor, and your organization for the inevitable leadership transition? In Succession, Are You Ready?, renown executive coach and bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith offers candid advice on succession from the outgoing executive's perspective. From choosing and grooming a successor while avoiding political minefields, to finally handing over responsibility, Goldsmith walks leaders through each step of the succession process. With Succession as a guide, executives possess a chart for navigating the perilous waters of personal and political issues surrounding their transfer of power.
Nathan only selects titles that meet a stringent set of StrategyDriven requirements. First, the title must be aligned with the StrategyDriven mission of delivering best practice solutions to small- and medium-sized businesses, including strategic planning, decision making, leadership, management, and organizational performance. Secondly, the authors must be highly respected in their field of study.
StrategyDriven author interviews are uniquely different than typical book reviews. The primary difference, these podcasts are not simply book reviews or summaries. Nathan reads each book prior to the interview and questions the author for a deeper understanding of the important strategies discussed in the book and probes for examples of real-world implementation of those strategies. As a result, listeners get more information, including author advice not contained within the book; offering additional value listeners can immediately incorporate into their business model. Additionally, StrategyDriven interview articles contain quick links to supplementary materials provided by the author.
