The Executive Director is a critical link to organizational identity and success. A leadership transition is both your greatest challenge and your greatest opportunity. It is an opportunity to assess not only what has made the organization successful in the past, but articulate and capture the challenges of the future, and the competencies needed to address those challenges. An executive transition can be stressful for even the most effective organizations.

The Role of the Executive Transition Committee
For many organizations, it's not appropriate for the full board to manage executive search and transition. The process requires the focused attention of a select group of board members who will provide guidance and oversight of a carefully crafted process.
As a tenured executive steps down, it is critical that your organization plans for the most successful leadership transition possible.
