Succession Planning

Succession planning, at its core, is a risk management practice critical to ensuring the viability of a nonprofit organization in the event of an executive’s unplanned absence, retirement or resignation. An organization undergoing the stress of an executive’s departure can find itself seriously destabilized or even in danger of collapse without proper preparation. But, it goes deeper than just planning for the departure of an executive.

Succession planning, at its core, is a risk management practice critical to ensuring the viability of a nonprofit organization in the event of an executive’s unplanned absence, retirement or resignation.  An organization undergoing the stress of an executive’s departure can find itself seriously destabilized or even in danger of collapse without proper preparation. But, it goes deeper than just planning for the departure of an executive. If done properly, the succession planning process will identify and develop internal resources that have the potential to fill key leadership positions when they arise. As succession planning takes root as a standard practice, the nonprofit sector will become much stronger and more effective at impacting the community.

 

This workshop is ideal for nonprofit board members, board chairs, executive directors, human resource professionals, and key nonprofit staff. 

 

Learning Objectives Include:

  • Learn the concepts of succession planning and leadership development within the framework of nonprofit organizations
  • Explore your nonprofit’s areas of functionality, the board/executive partnership, and strategies for strengthening your organization
  • Develop an organizational strategy for succession planning
