Proximity Picks: Curated Readings on CEO Succession and Talent Readiness
Whether your board and your incumbent CEO anticipate a top leadership succession event in the near term, or you are proactively informing and readying your board in advance of a future CEO succession event, we invite you to read Proximity Picks: Curated Readings on CEO Succession and Talent Readiness.
Annie Tobias, President and CEO of Proximity Institute has been joined by Tom Flynn, Board Chair of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and Sunnybrook President and CEO Dr. Andy Smith to curate this set of readings about leadership continuity as a resource for all Ontario hospitals.
The readings on CEO transitions, including board line of sight into high potential talent identification and readiness for the CEO role, have been hand selected. Proximity Picks is not prescriptive. Rather, the readings and discussion questions bring forward an array of best practices and are designed to build awareness and catalyze conversation with boards and their incumbent CEOs. The material is adaptable to all types of hospitals and contexts.
A hard copy of Proximity Picks has been mailed to all Ontario hospital CEOs and board chairs. Download the digital format to share with your board, post to your board portal or circulate as you feel appropriate.
