One more on the importance of succession planning from the smart folks at +The Nonprofit Quarterly, There are a bunch of #nonprofit organizations in our region that are transitioning leaders without succession plans. Are you preparing adequately? (note: I help nonprofits do this kind of thing) 
VOICES FROM THE FIELD Not much has been written about the role of the retiring executive in succession planning, but this now-retired longtime nonprofit executive would like to lay out his view of how a departing exec should participate to ensure a more successful transition.

My latest blog post on succession planning. The more I talk with folks, especially nonprofit board members, the more convinced I am that the lack of succession is one of the biggest governance holes for nonprofits.

My latest #nonprofit  blog on Strategic Planning.  Chasing the shiny new penny is not the starting place for strategy. Would love your thoughts!

After a hiatus of writing for my blog, I am starting up again.  Here is my first blog in quite some time.  Based on my belief that Relational philanthropy requires nonprofits to adopt a philosophy that erases the power differential between philanthropy and nonprofit organizations.
