Abstract:

Succession planning is a must in the next five years as baby-boomers reach retirement age. Utilizing the talents, knowledge and expertise of this retiring force is necessary and smart in order to bridge the gap left by their absence. This wealth of information is meant to be tapped and shared with younger staff. There is a moral requirement of anyone holding the knowledge to pass it on…‥to be a mentor. As adults we often times don't realize how valuable we are as human beings. We must know when to let go of our knowledge and honor and celebrate our wise, wonderful wisdom and be willing to share it with those taking our place.
