As a long-time nonprofit leader, you understand that a leadership transition can be a transformative yet challenging phase for both you and your organization. It’s a time of reflection and introspection, along with the need to ensure ongoing organizational sustainability. At TSNE, we recognize the importance of supporting leaders like you during this critical juncture. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that applications are now open for the fall 2023 cohort of What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition.
A Program Designed for Your Success
What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition is a carefully crafted, cohort-based transition planning program that aims to equip nonprofit leaders with the necessary tools and strategies to navigate succession and organizational sustainability during an executive transition. Our program goes beyond the theoretical aspects and provides you with practical insights, best practices, and a supportive community to help you and your organization thrive during this transformative period.
Why Choose What’s Next?
With What’s Next, you won’t have to face the challenges of a leadership transition alone. Our experienced facilitators will guide you through the exploration of personal and organizational readiness, succession planning, and industry best practices. Together, you’ll get the tools to develop action plans that will prepare you for your departure while ensuring that your legacy is understood and valued. But our support doesn’t end there. We offer coaching opportunities for you, your staff, and your board for up to two years after completing the program, ensuring a smooth and successful transition for your organization.

Here’s what some of our past participants have said about the What’s Next program:
“Open, transparent, masterfully and thoughtfully done. I appreciate everything that goes into it — the reading, the masterful facilitation, attention to relationships among cohorts, through the exercises, and presentation — all extremely helpful. Really like the balance between board, organization, and self.” — Jude Goldman
“The program got me out of the mindset that my leaving would upset the apple cart. Once the agency is sustainable, once that is secured, I would have a much easier time because I am ready, and my agency is ready.” — Margie Martinez
