Talent Management & Succession Planning Training
Whether your business is big or small, succession planning should be a critical part of your talent management strategy. It is all about looking ahead to the organisation you want to be in the future and making sure you have the right people in place to fill the new and re-positioned roles that inevitably come with growth and change.

Succession Planning Course Overview
Our succession planning workshop will help leaders understand the basics of succession planning and the tools to begin to develop a process. It will explore the different types of development processes that underpin succession planning including coaching and mentoring and introduce the concept of assessment for development. It will also look at how businesses may need to create specific, often time limited roles, to prepare individuals for the future.
We’ll also look at the challenge of internal mobility. That includes changing the mindset of line managers to see individuals as a corporate asset rather than a local resource. Persuading them to become champions of talent and recognising that their role is to facilitate movement around the organisation.
Our talent management and succession planning sessions can be run wherever is most suitable for you and your team, whether that’s onsite, at an external venue or hosted as a remote online session. The flexibility is there to fit it around you and your needs.
This workshop can be run in one of three ways. As a half or full-day standalone session, combined with our other courses to create a full management training programme or as a short, condensed 2-hour speaker session.
Who would benefit from our succession planning training?
Our talent management and succession planning workshop is designed primarily with SME organisations in mind, those companies that need help with talent planning but don’t have the inhouse resource to deliver it.
This session is especially beneficial to companies that are looking to grow and expand. Senior leaders will leave the course able to assess the current skills within their business, pinpoint any gaps and have strategies on how to identify and develop those needed in the future.
