The unexpected is bound to happen. A sudden transition in a key leadership role – and a lack of succession planning – puts missions in danger and organizations at risk. But such transitions also provide opportunities for growth. If your organization has a culture of leadership continuity focused on developing the human capital it will need for the future, then the unexpected can be a positive change. This three-part webinar series will help your organization build such a culture.


  •  Frame succession planning as essential to your organization’s long-term sustainability
  • Outline the essential components of an effective succession plan
  • Present five options for beginning your organization’s leadership continuity work
  • Provide specific tools and resources to support that work


$30 Members (includes all three webinars)

Part 1: Understanding Succession Planning

This session will frame succession planning as a key aspect of mission success and sustainability, lay a conceptual groundwork for the culture of leadership continuity, and demonstrate that there are multiple options for beginning the leadership continuity process. After completing this session, you will understand and be able to discuss with others the critical need for succession planning in your organization. You also will be equipped to assess your organization’s leadership continuity landscape.

Part 2: Creating the Conversation & Contingency Planning

This session will examine the first two options you may consider for beginning the succession planning process. But first, it introduces two important lenses through which succession planning should be viewed: personal emotion and the relevance of diversity, inclusion and equity. After completing this session, you will be able to initiate a generative discussion about leadership continuity, organize the essential information your agency needs for maintaining operations during a leadership change, and recommend a potential board leadership pipeline strategy.

Part 3: Succession Planning Through Policy, HR Practice & Strategic Planning 

This session presents the final three options for beginning the succession planning process and invites you to identify which approach you will take to initiate a culture of leadership continuity in your organization. After completing this session you will be able to lead your board’s adoption of three essential leadership succession policies. You also will be equipped to convene a generative discussion about using basic HR practices to support talent succession, and assess the extent to which your strategic plan includes human resources considerations.
