    SDA: Breakfast/Seminar Event on: Passing the Torch - When Boomers Retire, Who Will Mind the Shop?

    Presented by Joe L Gaskovski – Seneca College Professor

    As aging baby boomers reach retirement age over the coming years, many organizations will face a potential mass exodus of their senior leaders. Along with their departure goes a wealth of knowledge, vision and inspiration. This “Passing the Torch - When Boomers Retire, Who Will Mind the Shop” session looks to review some of the qualities and characteristics demonstrated by great leaders and reflect on how those same attributes can be transferred to the next generation.

    This session is designed to provide an overview of the concepts necessary to successfully support the succession planning process.

    Key Topics to Be Covered:

    • Succession Planning
    • The Transformation from a Good Leader to a Great Leader
    • Understanding the Next Generation
    • The Employee Engagement Connection
    • Qualities of Great Leadership
    • The Succession Journey
    • The Succession Challenge
