Succession Planning in a Post Covid World

Background graphoc with rainbow colored dots transparent background.
The unexpected departure of a key staff member can have the potential to cause organizational chaos. The question is not if people will leave, but when. Managing the succession of talent in your nonprofit is a vital strategic process that helps organizations minimize gaps in leadership, ensure the continuity of organizational knowledge and enables your people to develop the skills necessary for fulfilling new roles and achieving future goals.

COVID-19 has dramatically impacted close to every nonprofit’s operations, strategic plan, and way they do work. It is essential for nonprofits to ensure they have the right talent in place both now and for the future as they plan and rebuild.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Understand the purpose of connecting your succession plan with your organization’s overall strategic plan, mission and vision.
  • Create a step-by-step guide for implementing a robust succession plan process in your nonprofit.
  • Use our succession planning matrix to map out potential flight risk employees as well as identify internal high potential talent to fill those positions.
  • Identify the key competencies required for specific positions in your nonprofit and assess training needs for potential successors.
  • Implement Personal Development Plans (PDP’s) for developing the future leaders in your organization.
