Executive Transition + Succession

Executive Transitions Toolkit

There is risk in executive transition, but there is also tremendous opportunity for reflection, change, and organizational growth. When well planned and considered, leadership transitions can result in significantly stronger organizations.

MANP’s Mission-Driven Executive Transitions Toolkit is designed to give small to mid-sized organizations everything they need to design a thoughtful process to find an executive director who fits the current and future leadership needs of the organization.

This easy-to-follow 30-page toolkit will walk your board through the three phases of executive transitions management:

  • Prepare: Sharpen strategic direction and assess strengths, opportunities, and risks.
  • Search: Identify and hire a new chief executive, while also stabilizing the organization in preparation for a new leader.
  • Thrive: Support the new leader to get off to a good start.

Each section includes:

  • a checklist;
  • a list of recommended reading;
  • guiding questions;
  • insights directly from others who have experienced, led or advised leadership transitions; and
  • a list of templates and samples included with the toolkit (22 total!) so you can avoid reinventing any wheels.
