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.
Additional Details

Currently, we do not have a succession plan and the board has requested that I look into developing a plan that begins to identify the second in command and outlines trainings and development for all other key positions in the organization.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Organization chart, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have Development plans for some staff, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We have been top heavy and opportunities for upward mobility for employees have been very limited. We have expanded which has inspired the board to consider a succession plan.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
