Faculty: Don Tebbe, Author and Succession Planning Advisor
Everyone leaves their job eventually. Even heroic nonprofit leaders hang up their capes (or change jobs) at some point. What matters is when, how, and how well-managed the transition is when it occurs. Unfortunately, most executive transitions are not well planned. This leaves the board unprepared to make their most crucial decision. And they’re left scrambling if there’s an unexpected absence of the CEO. That impacts leadership continuity and even organizational sustainability.
Invest an hour and change the outlook for your organization. This session will get you started with “succession essentials:” A board-adopted succession policy ensures your board understands succession and has a game plan tailored to your organization. And an executive backup plan to cover for the CEO in case of an unexpected absence. More than an “insurance policy,” putting these tools in place is a terrific capacity-building exercise.
Veteran planning and succession consultant Don Tebbe will explain the “executive succession cycle,” describe the various types of succession plans, and guide you through completing the succession essentials templates, which are included in the webinar. This session will provide you with everything you need to implement these management excellence tools, tools every nonprofit should have in place regardless of size or budget.
