Leadership Development & Succession Planning with Beth Miller

In this episode I interview Leadership Development Advisor 
and Executive Coach Beth Armknecht Miller. We talk about how executives can create their own think-tank to help support them in their role and how to build organizational resiliency through succession planning.

Listen to hear Beth’s answers to these questions:

  • How do you successfully transition an executive in a higher up interim role into another?
  • What are the common mistakes of succession planning and how do you avoid them?
  • What does it mean when you have high potentials that are not performing up to their potential and what can you do about it?
  • How do you prepare to exit as a leader/business owner?
  • How to effectively reskill your employees at low cost?
  • How do you hire to your values and competencies?
  • What are some key tips to successfully onboard a new hire?
  • How does one deal with a difficult co-worker or boss?
  • What are some first steps managers can take to develop their coaching skills?
  • How do you nurture a desired culture?
  • How do you create psychological safety?
  • How do you create an accountability culture?

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t confuse high performers versus high potentials; one you promote, the other you develop
  • Hire for competencies
  • Employee engagement starts before they are even hired
  • Interact with your employees early and often
  • Use the “GROW” model to coach your employees
  • Difficulty is in the eyes of the beholder
  • The more replaceable you become the more you increase the value of your company
