Marshall Goldsmith's newest book, Succession: Are You Ready? is the latest addition to the Harvard Business ‘Memo to the CEO' series.
This book is written in the form of a series of memos to the CEO of a major company, and delves into the human side of the executive succession process. Dr. Goldsmith builds upon his 31 years of experience as an executive advisor to the world's leading corporations and shares ‘real world' examples of the challenges and opportunities in top management transition. While the book is written as letters to a fictional CEO, the learnings apply to leaders at all levels - who are faced with the prospect of either letting go or developing their successor.
