Nonprofit Leadership Succession Planning

Nonprofit Leadership Succession Planning

Staff leadership changes are a natural part of an organization’s lifecycle, but can create tremendous stress for both executives and boards of directors. There can be great risks to an organization’s health and sustainability if a transition is mishandled. However, by following a thoughtful process, all organizations can successfully navigate a change in executive leadership and emerge stronger. Facilitated by Allison Fuller of Envision Consulting, this workshop will help you develop a leadership transition plan if a change is planned and imminent or if the timing is not yet known. With experience in both succession planning and executive search, Allison will highlight common pitfalls and share a step-by-step process that can work for nonprofits of all sizes and missions.

Through this course, participants will:

  • Evaluate their current organization for leadership transition readiness
  • Understand available options to an organization at time of leadership transition
  • Learn how to build a long-term succession planning process with your Board
  • Hear case examples for executing a leadership transition

The instructor will host office hours via Zoom for class participants from 11 a.m. to Noon on Thursday, June 15.

Allison Fuller is the co-founder and managing partner at Envision Consulting, a consulting firm that specializes in providing leadership strategy and search solutions exclusively to nonprofit organizations. She has worked in the nonprofit world for more than ten years.

There is no fee for CNL Members, $55 for non-members.
