TransitionGuides has taken the best from over 22 previous sessions and added new content on the connection between leadership succession and organizational sustainability, as well as changing demographics and the need for diverse leadership.
Here's what past participants are saying:
“Exceedingly valuable session. I expected a lot but it greatly exceeded my expectations. I feel motivated and focused on what to do next.” Trudy McFall, Homes for America
“I have a much deeper understanding of succession planning and its importance and found the whole workshop compelling and thought-provoking. I am so glad I came. I’ve developed an action plan! Thanks.” Margie Hale, West Virginia Kids Count Fund
“A very worthwhile investment in time and money. The training provided me great clarity on my steps towards leaving the organization.” Terry Rubenstein, Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Family Funds
“This workshop helped to clarify and bring into focus my understanding of th transition process. I feel ready to develop my plan and set a date.” Gretchen Overdurff, Greenbelt Homes
"An invaluable exercise in grappling with tough issues and challenges." David Marzahl, Center for Economic Process
"One of the most important steps an organization can take to insure its long term viability is to develop succession plans. It is a basic building block of governance. TransitionGuides provides a very practical "Next Steps" workshop to address the succession planning process, and I highly recommend it." Gerald McCarthy, Virginia Environmental Endowment
“The workshop helped me make the actual decision! Thank you for providing me with two extremely important days of information, enlightenment and a way to plan my future in a very different manner. When I used to think about my retirement, it seemed as if there was a big flat wall in front of me, but now I’m really looking forward to life after Maine Humanities Council.” Dorothy Schwartz, Executive Director, Maine Humanities Council
“I attended the Next Steps workshop and found it not only helped provide a structured transition from my previous organization, but it also prepared me for my new chief executive role where I succeeded a retiring long-term executive. As a younger CEO, I realize that the Next Steps workshop was critical for a successful transition." Glen O’Gilvie, Chief Executive Officer, Center for Nonprofit Advancement
