Nonprofit leaders who are serious about their nonprofit’s sustainability take planning for a smooth and thoughtful leadership transition seriously - as well as making sure their nonprofit is prepared for an unexpected departure. For executives and boards that don't plan ahead, it can be a rocky, even perilous time. This session helps board members and organizational leaders get ahead of the curve by providing you with strategies and useful tips for a planned or unexpected transition and how to prepare for one as a regular part of organizational planning.

You’ll learn about the five classic types of executive transition and their inherent challenges, the difference between acting and interim executives, the specific board policies and staff procedures you want to have in place, as well as helpful response strategies and key activities to have in place. This session also covers pragmatic ways to grow leadership from within without making promises you can’t keep, and how to lead today as if you were leaving tomorrow.
