    Mindset, Motivation & Methodology for Long-term Business Sustainability


    Strengthen your leadership bench now for business success in the future.

    Have you ever thought about who comes next in your business?  You are a pivotal decision maker, but there will be a day when you will not be around. Most people say they want to continue working until they are 67 years old, but most people wind up leaving four years earlier to care for themselves, care for a family member's health issues, because they are promoted, or other retirement decisions.  The current crisis has caused many business owners and executives to think about their next steps.

    That begs the question, Who comes next?

    We have unprecedented unemployment in the United States, which is an amazing opportunity for you and your company to acquire top talent that may not have otherwise been available. This does not mean you neglect your internal leadership talent. You want to plan for the future. How do you do it all?

    Based on the 2020 book, Who Comes Next? Leadership Succession Planning Made Easy, Mary Kelly outlines the steps needed to strengthen your leadership bench, help people prepare for their next set of roles and responsibilities that are aligned with increasing positions of authority, and develop a viable succession plan that ensures future success.


    All registrants will receive a copy of the book with their registration fee.  The book will be shipped to the registrant before the program if registration is received by October 19.
