Succession Challenges Overview
One of the most stressful and troublesome experiences for an organization and its employees is a change in leadership. This is when businesses are most vulnerable to a drop in productivity, employee anxiety, inconsistent management and other problems that can have a significant negative impact on the company.
How This Affects Your Business
If a company does not plan ahead and have a process in place to make the transition of leadership as smooth and efficient as possible, there will likely be distractions and anxiety for the entire workforce.
This is especially true in the case of small or mid-sized businesses, when the departure of even just one top-level leader can leave a big hole.
