Everyone at your organization, including your executive, development, program, and operations directors, will move on at some point. We hope it’s because they retire in style and become one of your major donors instead. Whatever the reason, you’ll rest easier if you have a plan for their eventual transition. During this workshop, we’ll get honest about how to avoid the painful, awkward, and often costly mistakes that come from pretending you and your staff will never leave.

Led by a former executive director who has survived and learned from multiple staff transitions, this high-level session will cover:
•    Timelines for succession
•    Whether or not to hire an interim
•    Board responsibility for managing executive transitions
•    Helping remaining staff through a transition
•    When to consider organizational restructuring, mergers, or back-office partnerships
•    Communication priorities during transitions
•    First priorities for a successor
•    When to hire a search firm vs. using a search committee

This workshop is ideal for senior managers and board members of nonprofits.

This workshop is part of a 4-program series. Register for all four workshops here, and receive a 20% discount off the single-workshop price.
