Overcoming Common Roadblocks in Succession Planning

Succession planning can be an emotionally charged time, especially for C-suite executives who have been in a position for decades. There are many reasons why the transition would be difficult, and it’s a delicate balance to find the right fit that satisfies the needs of the business and the team.

The people leaving may have no interest in passing on their legacy, knowledge, and skills to the next generation, or they’ve wholly disengaged from the business and are already in retirement mode. Maybe they’re reluctant to pass on information because they worry the successor will outperform them. Whatever the case, the transition of power is not always easy.

Time Constraints Cause Roadblocks

Not all businesses properly prepare for a long-term employee’s succession and are left scrambling to find a suitable replacement before they retire. Time constraints are a significant factor in a successful transition of roles.

The successor must balance their existing job while training for the new, likely more prominent role and find the time for professional development sessions! Time is not always on our side, and Pivot HR’s consultant will help their client navigate the careful balancing act of transitioning roles.
