Key Takeaway

Thanks to Casey, organizations are thriving — not just surviving — during a leadership transition

The Foundation’s Executive Transition Management initiative pairs trained consultants with nonprofits that are experiencing a leadership loss. In this approach, board members and executives run an all-systems check on their organization, reassess the road ahead, and embrace the opportunity to consider new ideas and strategies. The goal is simple: A smooth passing of the professional torch — and a strong, steady start for the incoming leader.
