Community Learning Event: Succession Planning Made Simple

What happens when someone in a critical role in your organization suddenly leaves? And what steps should you take when a senior leader or key team member hands in their resignation?

In the non-profit sector, we know that succession planning is important – in theory. But in practice, it’s often “just one more onerous thing” on our never ending to-do list.

As leaders, we can’t afford to ignore succession planning.

A culture of ongoing succession helps our organizations to…

  • Support strategic development and implementation
  • Enhance continuity and sustainability
  • Ensure knowledge transfer of organizational memory, progress, and relationships
  • Motivate, develop, and retain high-potential employees

This session will help you clarify, simplify, and demystify succession planning. You’ll leave with helpful ideas and practical tactics to help you cultivate a culture of succession throughout your organization.
