"The departure of our founding Executive Director after nine years came at a busy time. I really didn't know how we were going to handle a search! Paula made our process very polished, very thorough, and a great experience for the Board and candidates alike."

    Planning for Leadership Transitions

    Executive transitions offer powerful moments of possibility. The executive search process involves taking stock of your organization, creating a future-focused leadership profile, identifying qualified candidates, hiring, and integrating your next executive—including establishing clear performance expectations.

    For organizations that are not anticipating a near-term leadership transition, it's never too soon for succession planning, a process to bolster systems and back-up plans in preparation for a change in staff and/or board leaders.

    With succession planning and search processes, I'll guide you through every step with caring consideration of your organization's strategic priorities, core values and distinctive culture.
