If the most active member of your team were to walk away tomorrow, would your organization come to a screeching halt or begin a chaotic scramble to figure out the next steps? Are you prepared to guide your organization through expected and unexpected team member transitions?

If the thought of losing and replacing essential team members makes you nervous, this session is for you. While every organization faces leadership transitions, very few proactively plan for all the scenarios you might face. Succession planning is the best way to avoid leadership gaps and ensure the long-term success and sustainability of your mission.

During this webinar, Marie Palacios of Funding for Good will show you strategies to ensure that your mission can move forward productively, even during transitions. You’ll discover the four focus areas your organization must consider when planning for sustainable leadership.

You’ll learn:

  • the different threats that can arise from both friendly and hostile transitions;
  • how to protect your organization’s physical and intellectual property;
  • the essential information that should be included in transition files to prepare for both
    unexpected and expected turnover; and,
  • ways a proactive communication plan can ensure your team and the community know what to expect.

You’ll leave with a better understanding of the realities of succession planning, a wealth of planning resources, and focused strategy session prompts to help get conversations started with your team.

This session is perfect for nonprofit founders, board members, staff, and volunteers who want to keep positions filled and ensure quality leadership in their organization.
