Executive Leadership Transition & Search
Executive Interim Leadership
Initially, board and staff often are overwhelmed with feelings of instability and loss. An experienced interim leader with a participatory approach will help board, staff, funders and other stakeholders navigate upheaval to emerge stronger, more resilient, and more purposeful than ever.
During transition, an organization’s ability to survive may be in doubt. A successful transition strategy engages diverse stakeholders in multiple ways to assess strengths and vulnerabilities. Participation is key in planning for a successful future.
Developing Strategies & Capacities
Transition often calls an organization’s plans and strategies into question. An effective assessment and genuine stakeholder engagement lead to new or revised strategies to leverage strengths and mitigate challenges.
Advancing into the Future
In the midst of change, it is tempting to hire a new leader without sufficient research and reflection. Often the immediate skills required are not the qualities needed in a long-term leader. Judicious capacity-building measures ensure success for a new executive.
