On this episode of Insight Into Interim Leaders, host Mark McConnell, Sr. Managing Director of McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders, talks more about how M+B Interim Leaders handle resignation disruption.
Resignation Disruption Part 1
When a key executive resigns from an organization, it can create an incredibly disruptive situation, especially if they only give two weeks’ notice. Businesses need systems in place to keep their departments running efficiently to fulfill unfinished projects or work streams, retain key employees, and stabilize the situation at hand when a vital team member leaves. McDermott +Bull Interim Leaders provides senior-level consultants who can help with all three aspects of the situation.
Resignation Disruption Part 2
When a leader resigns from their role, it can create an incredible disruption. On average, it takes three to four months to replace an employee at the leadership level. So, the key question is, how will the work get done during that time period?
Often, the easy answer is to resyndicate the workload across the existing staff. However, this can result in negative, unintended consequences, including a loss of morale, increased burnout, and higher turnover rates. McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders provides senior-level consultants who come in and help you avoid the unintended consequences mentioned above by filling empty executive roles with highly capable executive replacements.
Resignation Disruption Part 3
When a leader resigns, it causes an incredible amount of organizational disruption, which can create an extremely negative experience for companies. However, there is a silver lining. Throughout the three to four months it typically takes to hire a permanent replacement, use that time as an opportunity to critically evaluate the role and its responsibilities, conduct a thoughtful and patient search process, and come out the other side in a better place. McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders provides senior-level consultants who can steady organizational ships, act as thought partners, and create positive outcomes from otherwise negative situations.
