  1. These are great ideas, but I don’t understand tailoring these steps to just “next generation, young leaders”. Why wouldn’t you do this for ALL high-potential leaders in your company? This seems rather dismissive of all the “older” employees may have many more years to contribute to a company but could use the same mentoring. They may have switched careers, hold a new position in your company, come back into the work force for what ever reason, etc. As an older employee who switched careers 10 yrs ago and now taken on a new role in my company, I find this constant reference to and concentration on grooming the “young” and the “younger next generation” quite dismissive of what I have to offer the future growth of an organization.

    • Fair points, Myrna.

  2. These are great ideas for potential office folks. Do you have similar ideas on how to train young folks in the field that have the potential to be superintendents.
