Leadership is a complex and dynamic phenomenon that is hard to accurately assess, especially at senior levels where leading requires more than a well-developed set of competencies.Aaron Sorensen,Axiom Consulting Partners

“Best Practices for Creating a CEO Succession Plan,” featuring Axiom Consulting Partners’ Aaron Sorensen, Ph.D., will be webcast by ExecSense at 1:00 p.m. EST, Tuesday Jan. 14.
Registration for the event is available at http://bit.ly/1a3yXtx
Sorensen, who has helped boards of directors in a variety of industries choose the right leader to execute their strategies, will examine the steps that every company should take to create a robust CEO succession plan. Viewers will learn how to design and execute an inclusive process to select and transition a successor into the CEO role while maintaining the confidence of investors, customers, employees, and the Board of Directors.
Specific topics will include:
- Stakeholder involvement and management
- Inputs, outputs and decisions in the succession planning process and how to assess and select a successor;
- Best practices for documenting a practical succession plan;
- The relative value of various tools and techniques for assessing internal and external candidates and building a strong bench of leadership talent;
- Case study examples of successful succession plan implementation, including best practices for CEOs in leading transition activities.
“Research reveals that a company can increase market value by about a third by adding more science into an inherently subjective and political process such as succession, which is often void of objective thinking,” Sorensen says. “Leadership is a complex and dynamic phenomenon that is hard to accurately assess, especially at senior levels where leading requires more than a well-developed set of competencies. It takes a disciplined succession planning process and active involvement of the CEO and the board.”
