Tips for Leadership Transitions

For the Company:

• Develop a succession plan that includes a gap analysis of leadership needs
• Define the core values that will align the traits you are looking for in a leader
• Create a culture of open and honest communication allowing for feedback and encouragement
• Provide opportunities to learn and grow into leadership

For the individual that is transitioning in:

• Seek honest feedback of your skills, identifying strengths and opportunities for improvement
• Participate in training and education to bolster your skills
• Take opportunities and risk to expand your reach in a company


For the individual that is transitioning out:

• Set a goal to "let go" and define actions to accomplish this
• Work on you – what are you going to do after you transition?
• Set and share a timeline so that you and the organization are accountable


A transition in leadership is not an event, it is part of a culture that is developed within an organization. Transitioning has the potential to be an emotional process – it helps to find the right coach or specialist to work with you through specific issues.
