Managing Leadership Transitions
September 11 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Faculty: Carol Hamilton, Principal, Grace Social Sector Consulting
Course Objective: Learn ways to efficiently manage leadership transitions in your organization and turn it into an opportunity for growth.
Many organizations face a leadership transition in the next few years. Is it possible to use such a leadership change as an opportunity to grow the capacity of your organization? Managed well, a leadership change honors the past, inspires creativity among board members and staff, lays the foundation for expanded organizational performance – and creates an environment in which the new leader is likely to thrive. Managed poorly, a leadership change is often a stressful, anxious experience that causes an organization to lose momentum, compromise the services it provides, jeopardize key relationships with stakeholders – and make it difficult for the new leader to succeed. Learn how to set your organization up for success.
