What's Next: Leading a Thriving Transition

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Four NCG members have announced the California launch of What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition, a program for long-time leaders planning their transitions.

Leadership transitions can bring specific challenges and opportunities as executives explore their legacy, the board's increased leadership role, and the organization's readiness for change. What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition supports this critical process by engaging leaders in strategic discussions and exercises on sustainability planning, leadership transitions, and the personal aspects of both that are unique to long-time leaders. What’s Next supports leaders to depart with strength and poise, and helps organizations prepare for and embrace change.

The program, which has served 65 people from five cohorts since 2014 on the East Coast, launches in Northern and Southern California in Spring 2017. The deadline to apply is February 8, 2017. For more information, visit the program website

The California launch is co-sponsored by the Walter and Elise Haas Fund, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, The David and Lucille Packard Foundation, and The Durfee Foundation.
