Passing The Torch – Successful Leadership Transition in 90 Days

Consider this question…

“Who will be in charge of your company when you are no longer there?”

You’d prefer not to think about this, or if you do, you believe that it is a concern for tomorrow, not today. While this is the most common approach, unfortunately it is one of the worst. When you do not prepare for the future you are putting your company at risk. You are endangering the lives and livelihood of every single person who works for your company. You’ve spent far too many years to leave this up to chance!

How do you plan to prepare for leadership transition in your company?

Micromanage when the time comes.

Leave it to chance.

Let the new leader sink or swim.

Carefully and with considered forethought prepare with a plan in place long before it is ever needed.

Yes, the obvious answer is the last one, but most companies are not in a position to honestly choose that one. Without a plan in place, the experience can be grueling, stressful, and excruciatingly painful for everyone involved.

I’ve seen far too many transitions devolve into chaos and sometimes ruin for the company involved. Because of this I’ve developed a leadership transition blueprint that any leader or potential leader could follow. This is a series of three 90-minute webinars together with worksheets, resources, and tools that will provide the foundation to guide you smoothly and successfully through any transitioning position: the CEO, a bulk plant general manager, a long-time office manager, or even a dispatcher wanting to retire.

This petroleum-specific webinar course will provide…

For the exiting leader:

  A game plan that provides a sense of peace that good decisions and profitability will carry on without them

  Reporting controls that alert you in the event things don’t go according to plan, creating freedom from worry

  A method to provide important input without the incoming leader feeling you are “meddling” and violating important trust

 For the incoming future leader:

  The security of balanced guidance and earned decision freedom.

  A process that promotes mutual respect with existing leadership, other staff, vendors and customers

  Elimination of the fear of doing something wrong that accompanies most sink-or-swim or micromanagement-style transitions

In just three 90-minute sessions from the comfort of your own office and computer, you’ll get the plan and tools you need to successfully pass or receive the baton successfully. To insure your success and customize your experience, the series includes unlimited one-on-one phone consultations with the Meridian Team after each session.

If you calculate the cost of just one customer or employee lost due to the typical tug-of-war transition, you’ll know the $2995 and time investment is well worth it. This will be the ONLY live offering of this program. But here is the good news! Each session will be recorded and provided to you at no additional cost so you will have a permanent training program to use for all your leadership transitions in the years to come.

Here’s just a sampling of participant remarks from Session 1:

  • I do far more than I realized

  • I wish my Dad had left a clear organizational chart and job descriptions

  • I was amazed at how this process could apply to any position in our company, not just the CEO

  • Figuring out daily priorities is the biggest challenge of this position

  • Every position in our company needs to be replaceable

  • My biggest learning taking this position was that the employees knew more about the business than I did

  • I’ll help my successor know they can’t automatically trust everyone, that trust must be earned
