This webinar will offer time for affinity group members to reflect on the assessment and onboarding phases, common to both Interim Engagements and Executive Searches, through the following lenses:
• What turnaround research tells us about making these phases most effective
• Does assessment ever end?
• Length of time to implement changes indicated by assessment(s) & how to coordinate with successor executive to complete implementation
• Practitioner communication, coordination and teamwork with organizational leadership team
Based on original research from 111 case studies of struggling nonprofits, in 2010, Jan Glick, published Nonprofit Turnaround: A Guide for Nonprofit Leaders, Consultants and Funders. Glick’s perspective on the intersection of nonprofit struggles and executive transition is unique, in that he has guided nonprofit turnarounds in four different roles, as a permanent ED, an interim ED, a consultant, and a manager/advisor interim EDs. Jan has also facilitated over 25 ED and CEO transitions.
