Project Details

What We Need
  • A written succession plan that outlines a vision of the future leadership team, how to develop future leaders within the Organization and/or seek new talent to fill gaps, strategies for reducing disruption during a transition, and a draft timeline for any known upcoming leadership changes.
  • Coaching on how to engage senior leaders and key funders, and strategies for gaining the commitment of board members and staff to manage a planned or an unexpected transition intentionally.
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have No success plans, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have implemented projects but no reporting strategy, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This project will help guide our plans on how to succeed
