Navigating the Emerging Generational Shift in Leadership: The Nuts and Bolts of Succession Planning
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. | $30 for Chamber Members | $40 for Non-Members | Delta by Marriott, 1635 42nd Street South, Fargo
Presenter: Bethany Berkeley, performance consultant, Dale Carnegie of North Dakota and Minnesota
The emerging post-boomer workforce is a topic on everyone’s minds. We’ve heard the numbers and knew it was coming – the Social Security Administration now estimates an average of 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring each day, half of which occupy leadership roles. The great generational shift in leadership is here, but are we ready? Succession planning is vital, yet it typically lands lower on the priority list, if it makes the cut at all.

Join us for this session to understand how to strategically navigate succession planning to ensure the values, culture and achievements of your organization will be sustained. You’ll hear how other companies are tackling the generational shift in manageable and innovative ways and walk away with practical tools and resources to ensure your organization’s post-boomer workforce is high performing and prepared to drive results.
