Set up your company for long-term success by building and reinforcing your leadership pipeline

In the newly revised third edition of The Leadership Pipeline, a team of veteran leadership practitioners delivers a practical and essential framework for identifying future leaders, assessing their competence, planning their development, nurturing their talents, and analyzing the results of your efforts. The work to be done, the required skills, time application, and the necessary work values for each leadership layer are clearly defined for the digital age. The book explains how to integrate your organization's leadership development process with a succession plan that provides your company with a ready supply of capable leaders.

You'll discover the tools and techniques you need to knit together your succession and leadership development programs and constantly renew your leadership pipeline. You'll also:
* Explore anecdotes and stories drawn from the authors' extensive experience with top companies that illustrate the principles discussed in the book
* Find ways to eliminate bias and tunnel vision when identifying leadership candidates
* Learn to objectively consider the efficacy of individual leadership candidates

A powerful resource for managers, executives, board members, and other business leaders at firms of all sizes, The Leadership Pipeline is an effective and insightful blueprint to future-proofing your company.
