Whether you are an executive director, board member, or member of your senior management team, the time will come when your nonprofit faces a change in executive leadership. It may be sudden and unexpected, or it could be something that leaders have been contemplating for some time. In either case, are you ready for what lies ahead? During this panel discussion, nonprofit leaders will share their own experiences preparing organizations, teams, and themselves for leadership transitions, including how issues uncovered during transitions can impact an organization’s culture, and which challenges are best addressed before, during, and after a transition. They’ll share perspectives on the value of interim leadership, the anxieties and insights gleaned as a departing executive steps away from a role they have treasured, and the discernment process that a newly hired leader goes through in evaluating the appetite for the change in style, ideas, and impact they hope to bring.
