Building Leaderful Organizations: Succession Planning for Nonprofits Edit Title
Overall, this paper has two primary goals. First, we seek to continue detoxifying the topic of nonprofit succession planning so that executives, boards, staff and funders can take up these activities without unnecessary fear or concern. Second, we hope to provide nonprofit boards and executive directors a framework for their own succession planning activities.
The first section contains extended explanations of the three approaches to succession planning mentioned above. The second looks closely at tough issues organizations may face when planning for succession. The last section offers tools and resources, many of which have been used by the leadership consultants who designed the three approaches.
We trust the material here is helpful. We hope that when you are finished reading, you will come to see succession planning (as we do) not as something to be dreaded or ignored, but as a significant, strategic, and exciting opportunity to increase your organization’s service capacity, program effectiveness, and long-term stability and sustainability.
