Leadership Transition Barriers in Small Nonprofits (downloadable powerpoint) by Matt Kramer, Executive Director of the St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce: Tactical and strategic challenges of leadership transitions in a short powerpoint.
Importance of this session:
- Board chairs of nonprofits agree that hiring an executive director is the most important thing that they can do during their board service
- Yet research shows nonprofit boards regularly avoid any discussion of leadership transition
- When chairs are faced with a transition, they invariably express relief that the transition went well, as if luck played a part
