Thresholds: Leaving Nonprofit Life with Courage and Grace

Thresholds for Executives with Continuing Careers

Presented by: Gammy Bird Consulting

Whether leaving a mission filled life as a NP leader or transitioning from your current position to another, it is challenging at best. To do so successfully requires support, tools, and know-how and courage. Are these questions on your mind?

  • When and how do I share the news that I have decided to leave my organization?
  • What are best practices in wrapping up my time with an organization?
  • What do I say to a potential internal candidate?
  • I’ve been grooming a staff person. How do I make this known without overstepping my bounds?
  • How do I support my staff as I ready myself to leave?
  • Is the board ready to handle this?
  • My board wants to do a strategic plan. Is now the right time?
  • Some staff positions really need to be shifted around. Do I do it or leave it to the next executive?
  • What if I leave before the board hires someone?
  • What are the best resources to share with the board?

In total confidential, Eos Transition Partners offers Thresholds: Leaving Nonprofit Life with Courage and Grace – an invaluable cohort-style opportunity to learn about effective practices to prepare for your leadership departure, to share with others the joys and anxieties of leaving your work, and, use tools to assess organizational vulnerabilities and the actions necessary to leave well.

The experience includes:

  • A total of 8 hours, comprised of four two-hour virtual sessions over 5-6 weeks
  • Between-session reading and assignments to amplify the learning and virtual experience
  • Confidential participation (Public awareness of your approaching departure is certainly not necessary)
  • The Thresholds experience is limited to a cohort of 8-10 peers experiencing the same stage of nonprofit life

Who should attend: Executive directors - mid-career - who are contemplating departure 6 - 18 months away.

Date/Time: Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - 12:00pm to Tuesday, January 25, 2022 - 12:00pm
