thresholds program for departing or retiring executive directors / ceoS

We recognize that departing your organization requires support, tools, and know-how. The Thresholds Program offers two distinct cohorts - one for Executive Directors/CEOs retiring from their organizations, and the other for Executive Directors/CEOs continuing on in their careers. These programs offer executives the opportunity to learn about effective practices to prepare for leadership departure.

The Thresholds Programs will help you to answer these questions and more:

  • When and how do I share the news that I have decided to leave my organization?
  • What are best practices in wrapping up my time with my organization?
  • Is the board ready to handle this?
  • How do I support my staff as I ready myself to leave?

Here's what previous participants had to say about the program:

"The program is like preventive medicine - it helps ensure that our transitions are thoughtful and planful."

"The program was excellent for collecting information for when you are ready to depart - great materials, tools, and resources."

"I went into the program feeling alone.  I couldn't even sort out what the issues at hand were and was feeling emotionally overwhelmed. It was so helpful to be with peers experiencing what I was, and learning from each other."
