Srila Prabhupada on Training leaders

“So I am very much pleased upon you for your kindly guiding and training the new devotees in so many ways. Yes, if you simply instruct them as I have taught also you, being yourself always the perfect example and above suspicion, that will act with great force. I am doing that. And you have pointed out that you want to train others to be leaders, because you have observed there is at present not very many qualified leaders. That is good proposal.”

  • Srila Prabhupada December 1972
what is succession planning
What is Succession Planning?
  • Succession planning is an ongoing process of systematically identifying, assessing, and developing talent to ensure leadership continuity for all key positions in an organization. 
why is succession planning necessary
Why is Succession Planning necessary?
  • Many of our leaders are aging, approaching “retirement”
  • In many areas there is a shortage of new leaders to replace current ones when needed.
  • When a need arises, it is often a “crisis” with stop-gap measures put into place and insufficient solutions.
  • Often, current leaders at all levels are insufficiently trained or experienced at leadership.
  • We need to engage new and younger devotees with ability to spread the Krishna Consciousness movement.
