"CEN's ED Transition training was perhaps the most useful training  I've ever attended. It was interesting, engaging, and extremely practical."

In this workshop you will learn how to identify and minimize the negative impact of planned and unexpected separations. The training will offer tools and resources to plan for a smooth transition of roles by assessing potential risks/deficits and matching them with strategies to ensure continuity and sustainability for your organization.

Intended Audience: Nonprofit executives, senior staff and managers.


  • Understand why succession planning is a critical strategic process that effects the whole organization
