In this episode of Leadership is Language Sally Murfet sits down with Emma Ayliffe to discuss succession planning and the communication styles, generational drivers and relationship dynamics that can make succession a smoother and more productive process.
- some of the hardest conversations are the most important conversations to have
- ask yourself what is the pay-off for not having the difficult conversations
- understand communication styles, relationship dynamics and generational drivers
- PART – people, approach, relationships and timing
“…. nothing happens without relationship and communication. If you can’t get this part right, nothing else is going to happen along the way. So invest in this process. Invest in yourself so that you can sit at the table and have these conversations that are going to get great outcomes for yourself and great outcomes for the family.”
