This morning when I flicked over my desktop Dlibert calendar I was greeteed with this image on Dilbert’s version of succession planning.

Love Dilbert

And that’s how Dumb Leaders approach succession planning, with suspicion and a need to make themselves indespensible.

The reality is something else. They may think they are making themselves indisposable, and if that was the case, they have effectively lock themselves out of ever progressing further than their current level. Ever.

Succession planning is the key for you to progress. the time you spend developing your team is a valuable investment. Surround yourself with great people, develop them to be better and watch your career soar.
