Leadership Transition: Planning for Sustainability and Building Healthy Organizations

Learn how to create sustainability in an organization and prepare for leadership transitions.

Nonprofit Board leaders and executives who are interested in building organizational capacity, strengthening internal leadership and preparing for leadership transition will benefit from this workshop.

The workshop offers frameworks for the many components of planning for sustainability: mission sustainability, succession planning, leadership capacity building, risk management and executive transition. Practical assessments, tools and resources that build organizational capacity will be shared.

Participants will engage in discussion about how sustainability planning builds organizational capacity, and the different roles that staff and board play in planning, particularly as it related to developing leadership across the organization. Participants will leave with the building blocks of an action plan, an understanding of barriers, and clarity on the steps needed to integrate organizational sustainability practices into their organization over the long term.
