Leadership succession in family foundations is the proverbial “tangled web.” The likely transitions – from one chairman to the next, one executive director to the next, and one generation to the next –guarantee that all but the newest family foundations are virtually in a constant state of change. Attendees will:
• be led to untangle the many and sticky strands of the transition “web,” including events that most often spark leadership transitions
• understand why succession needs to be viewed as a process, not an event
• learn what causes current leaders to be concerned about their successors – and vice versa
• discover how established practices can prepare for future successions and mitigate potential conflicts.
