Executive Transitions & Search

Leverage the Power of Leadership Change

Successful leadership transitions are pivotal moments in the lifecycle of a nonprofit organization.

Our executive transitions and search program helps you find just the right leader for your nonprofit. Our unique transition management strategy combines capacity-building services for nonprofits—staff development, organizational development and leadership coaching—with executive search to ensure the organization is well positioned for long-term success. Our program has created positive results for many organizations. 

Our consultants guide you through every aspect of the transition.

Our Executive Transition consultants are experts in guiding nonprofit board, senior staff and transition committee through the essential steps of leadership change. Our consultants:

  • Assess the organization and strengthen it before the new executive director takes charge
  • Develop a clear job description for the open position, the type of leadership necessary to move the nonprofit toward its vision
  • Conduct a deep and broad search, including outreach to and recruitment of diverse candidates, to deliver a strong pool of executive-level candidates from which the board can select
  • Provide post-hire support to ensure that the board and the new executive director are well positioned for success

Third Sector New England has decades of experience working with the region’s nonprofits – and a respected track record finding the best possible new leader. In a recent study, we found that 91 percent of executives placed by TSNE in the past five years are still in their positions today. Download our Executive Transitions Program brochure to learn more
