Sustainability of not-for-profit organizations is a growing concern. Aging Canadian demographics suggest over half of not-for-profits will undergo a leadership transition within five years. The best nonprofit organizations rely not just on one person, but have implemented processes that can be effective no matter who is leading the organization. More efficient and documented operations protect the organization from unexpected absences, and decrease the time and effort needed to train the next leader.

This intensive, applied ½ day workshop will help leaders understand where the next leaders will come from, how to develop their competencies for the future, and how to ensure the organization’s standard procedures are strong enough to withstand an unexpected absence or transition.

Workshop Outline:

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will have:

  • An understanding of succession planning theory and principles
  • A working knowledge of how to apply them within their own realities of budgets and operations
  • A toolkit to plan the development of any potential successors
  • An understanding of their organization’s readiness for a transition or unexpected absence
  • A toolkit to build operational sustainability for the organization
