Succession Planning: A True Story of Transition in Local Government
I would like to share with you this unique process of succession planning when you don't have any control over the final outcome. This succession process is to let the town board feel comfortable in appointing someone to assist in the transition to maintain continuity of the local government, while minimizing change for town staff. The process took over one year and a lot of planning, (and things falling into place). I played the role of the consultant as well as the person being replaced. Marshall Goldsmith's book “Succession... Are you ready?” played a significant role in my mindset as I worked through the process.
