Succession Planning: Planning for the Inevitable


This webinar will present strategies for talent development and succession planning that prepare nonprofit organizations for leadership transitions, planned and unplanned. Ongoing attention to building the staff bench behind key leadership positions enables an organization to successfully take on unexpected challenges, including the departure of a key leader.

Learning Objectives:

This workshop will help chief executives and board members explore three types of succession planning:
  • Strategic Leader Development – techniques for building your talent pool in line with your strategic goals
  • Emergency Succession Planning – a risk management practice that prepares an organization for an unexpected absence of a key leader
  • Departure-Defined Succession Planning – steps long-term executives should take a year or more in advance of their departures to ensure a smooth transition to their successors.

Class Format
