The Power of Strategic Talent Planning

November 2, 2016

During a recent visit with uber-successful CEO Joel Trammell (, I was reminded of a key CEO responsibility…one of your most important jobs.

Joel made a comment that “most roles within an organization are based on the present (and judged on the past), but the CEO’s job is to focus 80% of his or her time on the future.”

Think about that for a second – If you’re spending most of your time driving today’s sales or putting out fires and dealing with the “tyranny of the urgent,” then you don’t have time to see into the future and strategically guide your company towards the Promised Land.
