Talent Management for the Small-Mid Sized Business
Creating a talent bench for your business needs both today and tomorrow is a critical priority for the CEO/Leadership Team.
Having the talent on-board with the required skills and capabilities to grow your business is often what holds most organizations back from achieving their goals. Retaining your talent because you are proven to be a leading edge organization with a priority emphasis on growth, learning and leadership is equally important!
We can work with you to develop a talent management program which brings the latest research and insights to you in an easy to understand and accessible manner. We will skip the complexity and give you just what you need to ensure you are best prepared to acquire, develop and retain the talent you need to create the business growth trajectory now and a legacy for the future of your organization.
Organizational Design and Succession Planning for the Small-Mid Sized Business
How you structure your organization is critical to ensuring alignment between your business model, your strategy, your talent bench and your culture so that you are getting the performance you want in the marketplace.
Being in a centralized, decentralized, functional, team or cross functional structure will affect your productivity, your ability to control or empower as well as your ability to train and develop those skill sets which may be critical to your current business or future needs.
Even when you get it all of these decisions right, it cannot stay in place forever as the changing marketplace dynamics will cause you to anticipate and respond to the evolving conditions.
So it is critical that you also invest your time and energy in succession planning initiatives so that you have the players on the bench who can grow and evolve into your future roles and fulfill the future needs of the business.
How you plan your succession is a critical and continuous step in ensuring your talent base is cross-trained, well networked and has exposure to the people and parts of the business that they may need to lead in the near/mid term. You will also need to ensure leadership behavioral competencies are well developed in addition to the basic technical skills so that your successors will also be able to lead and develop others as you secure a sustainable business future for your organization.
We can help you assess your talent by utilizing a structured succession planning process. Once you have perspective on your gaps, we can help you create the process and plans to secure your future talent needs through competency model development, coaching, mentoring and high potential leadership development initiatives.
