ACT NOW! WE HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF OPENINGS LEFT FOR THIS SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY
The San Antonio Area Foundation is offering a unique pilot program designed for a small group of CEOs to participate in a succession planning cohort. We designed this program in response to CCAT results showing 95% of organizations have a need to prioritize leadership capacity and sustainability by cultivating organizational leaders, avoiding over-reliance on one leader, and planning for leadership transition (including having a succession plan).
We are very excited to bring this program, called “Succession Planning Matters!” to our nonprofit community. The program is a combination of training and coaching limited to 15 senior executive directors, with five executive coaches leading the sessions. Thanks to the generosity of these executive coaches, each CEO will have hours to spend with the coaches at an incredibly low rate for what would otherwise cost tens of thousands of dollars. “Succession Planning Matters” participants will learn how to weave succession into organizational planning.
If your organization is in the 95% that needs to develop your leadership capacity, we encourage you to apply for this unique opportunity to proactively strengthen your organization!
A limited number of partial scholarships are available.
