13 Five Step Process Succession/Career Management 4. Train managershow to interpret results: hold coaching conversations; create individual development plans with staff; use 9 box grid, establish readiness and conduct talent reviews 5. Review success: use metrics like time-to fill, number of internal versus external hires; track engagement levels, participation in training, coaching hours etc.

20 Long Espresso Succession/Career Management Strategies Structured learning programs for all (not just high potentials). Bi-annual talent reviews. Integrated talent assessment and tracking systems. Competency-based Performance reviews.
21 Top Talent Development Strategies Management development must come first. In low risk, low resource environments create on-the-job experiences for growth. Help employees to define their unique value proposition; create mentor relationships based on this expertise; have lunch-n-learns. Use validated, consistent, objective talent assessments and share summary of employee results with all managers. To know the road ahead, ask those coming back ~ Chinese Proverb
22 Mistakes to AVOID Don t 1. Create rigid career paths based on an old hierarchical model; lateral moves are also valued. 2. Assume everyone aspires to move up the ladder. 3. Ignore Millennials need for mobility; feedback; meaningful work. 4. Assume managers are coaching have a system to track this. 5. Try to do it all yourself. Remain the facilitator.
