Support Center Accelerator Series: The Leadership Edge

December 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EST


Support Center is hosting a series of four workshops in three locations across NJ (Newark, Piscataway, and Moorestown – see below for dates and times) that address critical issues in the nonprofit sector: succession planning, attracting and retaining ‘investors’, capturing and communicating mission impact, and integrating organization assessments into strategic planning. The series will begin in November 2019 and run through May 2020.

Who should attend?! New Jersey-based nonprofit CEOs and Executive Directors, Board Members, and Senior Staff are all encouraged to attend all of the sessions, and multiple persons from one organization are especially welcome! It is also an option to register only for those sessions of interest to your organization. The sessions will include short lectures, small group activities, opportunities to ask questions, useful hand-outs, case studies, and fun! There will also be opportunities for follow-up sessions to integrate what you have learned with your peers.

Session 1: The Leadership Edge: Reducing Organizational Risk through Leadership Development and Emergency Succession Planning

Ongoing, thoughtful, and intentional leader development and emergency succession planning are important to securing the mission of any nonprofit organization and reducing the risks of leader transitions. Too often, the day-to-day imperatives of our work take so much of our attention that even our best leaders don’t take the time to plan approaches that could reduce the risk that organizations experience when they lose critical leadership. Both organizational and personal disasters can occur if good planning is not in place. Most importantly, Executive leader succession planning is a key Board responsibility that includes preparing for an emergency, a temporary absence, or a planned departure with minimum disruption.
