About this Event

Workshop Overview

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. Preparing properly can protect the organization from unexpected absences, and decrease the time and effort needed to select train the next leader.

This intensive, 2.5-hour workshop will help leaders understand where the next leaders will come from, how to develop their competencies for the future, and how to plan for transitions or absences.

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 organization
  • A toolkit to plan the development of any potential successors
  • An understanding of their organization’s readiness for a transition or unexpected absence

Participants will receive an electronic resource guide including templates and planning resources prior to the session.
