1. Assess your attitude about developing the next generation. It’s hard to do anything well if it isn’t a priority.
  2. Discuss which path is best for your farm – a separate “field” approach or an integrated farm approach.
  3. List the top five competencies that the current generation has or would like to have. Maybe there are things you admire in other successful farms.
  4. Attach two activities to each competency that would build exposure and understanding.
  5. Review how you are doing every quarter.
