Free CEO Succession Planning Guide

Get a free copy of this guide to crafting your exit strategy. New edition.

I just published a brand-new edition of my free CEO succession planning guide, “Take Charge of Your Exit: The Nonprofit CEOs How-to Guide for Developing an Exit Strategy.”

Take Charge of Your Exit Cover

I wrote it specifically for nonprofit CEOs who know they are going to retire or otherwise leave their position in the next few years (1 to 3 years).

This 20-page guide covers the dynamics of CEO succession, especially if you are a founder, long-tenured or transformational leader. It covers:

  • What it means to “take charge” of your exit, neither controlling the process nor abdicating all responsibility.
  • What an exit strategy is and why you need one.
  • What transition readiness means, and the three elements of organizational readiness as well as your own readiness for the path ahead.
  • The three jobs (two of them new) of the leader-in-transition.
  • Six potential stages of your succession path.
  • Communications planning.
  • Managing emotions, yours and others.
  • Coming to closure.
  • Key actions to take to get rolling on your plan.
  • Links to free tools that can help you flesh out your plan.
