Leaders leave. It's inevitable. It might even happen today.

Are you prepared?

Every organization needs a plan for leadership succession, but few leaders know how to start the process. WHO COMES NEXT? solves that problem and easily guides you through the steps of creating a viable succession plan.

The book simplifies the process and gives you the tools you need to build and activate your leadership succession. Whether you are part of a small, family business or a Fortune 500 company, you need to start now by answering the question: WHO COMES NEXT?

"This book is a comprehensive look at succession planning, but with a refreshing spin that favors the practical over the theoretical. It's applicable to any industry, and readers will benefit from action items, tools, and resources with every chapter. Succession planning has never been more critical, and this book is a must-read for any professional looking to answer the question, "Who Comes Next?"
--Michael Delucchi, President and Chief Elevation Officer, The Elevate Group

"Meridith and Mary are my 'go to' experts for succession planning, and they've created the definitive guide for how to build a strong succession plan. In this book, they break it down, give you a strategy, and deliver everything you need to create leadership depth at every level of your organization."
--Angela Cox Weston, President, Midwest Speakers Bureau
