Succession Planning Sessions

Project Details

What We Need
  • 3-5 one hour strategy sessions with a change management professional covering topics like transition timelines, executive recruitment, and future leadership team structure
  • 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

Our organization is in need of a clear succession plan that outlines how to proceed due to loss of leadership at various levels, whether foreshadowed or sudden.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a need to create this plan from scratch, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a very responsive management team, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,198 , allowing us to reallocate those funds toward our current advocacy projects and services.

Our organization is light with regard to high-level leadership positions, but heavy on mid-level leadership. This could make it difficult for a steady transition of leadership in the future.

Project Plan

Prep: Current State
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with any documents that will help provide context on the Organization's current state, including strategic plan if available
  • Professional holds initial meeting with Volunteer Manager to discuss specific needs and timing around succession planning
  • Professional provides Volunteer Manager with succession planning readiness questions
Milestone 1: Strategy Sessions
  • 3-5 strategy sessions with Professional, Executive team, and Board of Directors (if applicable)
  • [Suggested Session] Discussing competencies required for a leadership role within the Organization
  • [Suggested Session] Identifying potential leaders within the Organization and discussing development plans
  • [Suggested Session] Internal communications strategy for any changes to come
Milestone 2: Next Steps
  • Professional shares brief with summary of discussion, agreed upon succession planning strategies & tactics to prioritize, and areas for further exploration
