WEBINAR: Nonprofit Leadership Transitions and Organizational Sustainability


Nonprofit Leadership Transitions and Organizational Sustainability

An Updated Approach that Changes the Landscape

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

2:00pm – 3:00pm EDT      


Executive transitions, we are warned must be taken very seriously because a wrong hire can erode cash, reputation, relationships and much more – it is very high stakes we are told – an inflection point with enormous consequences. But is this narrative necessarily true? Or is there in fact more to the story?  Yes, executive transitions are powerful lever points. And they are even more powerful when not viewed in isolation.  Are there other ways we could think about leadership succession that would limit the occasion of harm, help diversify top leadership, smooth out bumps and, in fact, steadily increase the organization’s leadership quotient internally and amongst its peers on a more consistent basis?

There are, but it requires a different way of thinking – a shift from episodic attention to some dimension of leadership to connecting the dots with powerful results.

NPQ is proud to present this groundbreaking webinar is featuring two of the nonprofit sector’s most well-known experts on executive transition – Jeanne Bell of CompassPoint and Tom Adams of Raffa, P.C. They will discuss three critical “paradigm shifts” nonprofits should make in thinking about succession planning and executive transition. A collection of four papers will come with this presentation.
