Leadership Transition Summit

Course Details

Executive transition in nonprofits can be perilous and difficult to navigate. At this summit, we learn about how to plan leadership transitions that are positive for the organization and the people who are stepping in and out of leadership.

Frances Kunreuther and Sean Thomas-Breitfeld, co-directors of the Building Movement Project, join us to share their perspective. Building Movement Project is a leading national capacity builder and is known for their research and action related to racial equity in nonprofits, generational shifts and leadership transitions. We also hear from Washington State nonprofit leaders who have approached leadership transition in a thoughtful way and can share lessons learned.

We encourage teams of staff and board to attend together to reflect on how to prepare your organization for change. Even if your CEO is not yet thinking about leaving, it is not too early to lay the groundwork and shape a culture that supports successful transitions. This summit is focused primarily on the adaptive issues associated with leadership transition. Rather than a “how-to” workshop with a checklist of tasks, we explore how organizational culture, power dynamics, and personalities can make or break an executive transition.

Register for the on-demand course to get access to the recording and resources from the virtual event that occurred on 1/26/2022. The recording does not include breakout sessions.


The on-demand course costs $20. You will receive an email with instructions on how to access the on-demand content.
