How to Create a Culture of Succession Readiness

How to Create a Culture of Succession Readiness | Leadership Talent Management | Scoop.it
Is your organization ready to bridge the knowledge gaps retiring baby boomers will leave behind? Tom Gilbert, a 20th century performance expert, created a formula to measure the performance improvement potential for every worker in a specific work setting. By looking at the exemplar, Gilbert demonstrated what the variance was in terms of possible — or potential — performance. Some companies today use Gilbert’s formula. Instead of assuming the most accomplished performer is uniquely different from the lowest performer, his work reminds that differences often relate to opportunity and contingency. With proper coaching — opportunity — and consequences for increasing skills — contingency — a performer at any level of accomplishment can advance.

I think there is a great need to teach old dogs new tricks, especially senior managers and executives – my generation.
