Apply by Aug 5 — What's Next: Leading a Thriving Transition

Starting fall 2022
Greater Boston, MA

Apply for the fall 2022 cohort by August 5.

Leadership transition is one of the most destabilizing changes for an organization. What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition is TSNE’s cohort-based leadership transition program. Our program helps to build the capacity of nonprofit leaders to address succession and executive transition issues, and to ensure ongoing organizational sustainability.

TSNE offers What’s Next to support long-time leaders in preparing their organizations and themselves for a leadership transition. 

What's Next Helps You:

  • Assess your organization’s transition readiness
  • Learn best practices and tools to prepare for transition
  • Address organizational vulnerabilities related to a transition
  • Increase clarity on the leader's personal steps to departure
  • Motivate leaders to plan and implement the steps in leaving
  • Focus on planning for the future after your departure
  • Lay the groundwork for organizational sustainability
  • Access support through a peer network

This program is made possible through the support of the Liberty Mutual Foundation.

Get Started

This program is designed for long-term leaders, defined as those with 15 years or more of experience as an executive director, chief executive officer, or similar leadership position, who are planning to leave their organizations in the next two to five years. Applicants with this background will be prioritized. However, we recognize that the need for this program goes beyond long-term leaders and will consider all applications.

We highly encourage Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) leaders to apply. Historically, leadership supports and resources have not been readily available and accessible to BIPOC leaders. TSNE incorporates a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging framework into the What’s Next program, as well as all of our other programs, that allow us to directly address the unique experiences of BIPOC leaders in the nonprofit sector.  

Program Dates and Details

  • Two two-day retreats for each cohort. Attendance is required at both retreats. Sessions occur in September and October (dates to be finalized)
  • Applicants from the greater Boston area will be prioritized in this cohort

  • Each cohort includes up to 18 participants
