{As I look back on my career, this book would have guided me well through my military career, transition to corporate America, technical supervision, business unit management, cross-functional influence, and now executive leadership. I highlighted passages and took notes throughout the book. There are several Aha's and numerous reminders. All increase engagement and leadership effectiveness. I look forward to using the advice as I transition to my new executive position next week. Overall, this book is a consumable read for junior and senior leaders. Well Done!

Succession Planning

Identifying who will eventually fill vacancies in the top leadership positions of a company should be a critical priority. However, building a sustainable pipeline of talent starts by looking deep into the organization, specifically identifying talent at the middle level. After all, this group of individuals holds the fate of the company in their hands. In every case, early identification of these future leaders is a necessity as 87% of organizations prefer to promote internal talent versus relying on external hires for top key leadership positions.

With the preference of the majority of organizations to promoting from within, what tools and practices should they integrate into their talent strategy to identify, develop and prepare an internal and diverse pipeline of talent.
