Interim Leadership

Hiring an interim can be a bridge to success
“67% of all executive directors plan to leave their current position over the next five years”

– Daring to Lead, 2011

When a nonprofit organization experiences a leadership transition, hiring an interim executive director can be the most logical and positive action its board can take.

Leadership change is an increasingly common aspect of nonprofit organizational life. Multiple studies reinforce the impending turnover of top leadership in the nonprofit sector, due in great part to the aging boomer population. It’s not a matter of if, but when the change is coming.

A temporary, external interim executive can be a potent tool for seizing the capacity-building opportunities inherent in a transition period. A skilled interim executive will provide an objective review, manage risk, engage stakeholders, and spur positive change.
