Your organization should have an emergency or succession plan in place, especially as founding and long-term executive directors consider retirement. A succession plan serves as a roadmap for the transition and helps prepare staff, funders and the board for changes to come. Working with the organization to ensure a smooth transition, we specialize in preparing founders, long-tenured executives and board leaders through coaching and organizational assistance.

At its core, succession planning is a set of answers to the question: “Who will the future leaders of our organization be, and how will we make sure they’re ready to lead?”

Possible considerations include:

  • Staff recruitment and retention
  • Leadership and professional development
  • Organizational structure and HR policies
  • Internal promotion systems
  • Current ED tenure and projections
  • Emergency scenarios
  • Interim leadership
  • Board leadership continuity, composition, development
