We have some people in interim leadership roles that really shouldn’t be there. Many have been appointed to fill a vacancy because they have longevity and experience with the company. These people often retain the position by default when we advertise the vacancy—usually because they already have been doing the job for a while and are therefore considered to be qualified. How could we reverse this trend to make sure that we elevate people only when they are ready for the additional responsibilities?
