Interim Leadership

TRUE OR FALSE: Having the wrong person in a leadership position is one of the most costly mistakes an organization can make.


Whether its the Level 5 Leadership referenced in Jim Collins’ book, Good to Great, the Pinnacle Level of Leadership in John C. Maxwell’s, The 5 Levels of Leadership, or the notion of shared leadership referenced in Leslie Crutchfield and Heather McLeod Grant’s Forces for Good; the role that leadership plays in organizational success is undeniable.

Conversely, few organizations have the ability to maintain operations effectively if a key leadership position is vacant for an extended period of time.

So what’s an organization to do?

Back-filling these vacancies with a staff who has other duties within the organization is a common bandaid, approach that often comes with new challenges; factor in the length of time that it can take to find the right person for the job, and it’s easy to see how tempting it can be to settle for “good enough” even when its not what’s best.
