Managing Leadership and Organizational Transitions [Binghamton]

Presented Doug Sauer, CEO, New York Council of Nonprofits, Inc. 
Broome County Public Library

Nonprofits are currently facing changes from almost every direction. Long time leaders are transitioning out of our sector, funding partners are encouraging us to transition resources, suggesting deeper partnerships and even shared service models with other nonprofits. Many organizations are even being challenged to consider transitioning services to another nonprofit – and are having on-going conversations about potential merger partners. How do we manage all of these transitions strategically, and deftly guide our organization to calmer waters?This 3-hour workshop will provide participants with practical advice, tools and suggestions on how to strategically manage in these types of situations, and more. Our presenter will provide real-world examples of successes and failures, and the lessons learned from each.
