Or the decision may be entirely personal in nature – illness, changing family needs, or retirement. Some reasons for leaving will allow for more notice than others. Some will be on better terms than others. Some leaders will have more to give than others by the time they choose to leave. Obviously, it’s impossible to account for the specific details around each situation, but there are some clear steps that you will need to take regardless of why you are leaving.
There are many questions facing an Executive Director when considering departing their organization, such as:
After 11 years as Executive Director of Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank, Cori Walters stepped down from her role, leaving big shoes to fill. In her time with Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank, she helped to facilitate monumental changes to make the organization more successful in its mission to provide basic needs for the community and promote self-sufficiency. This has resulted in a strong foundation that grounds the staff team, board, and strategic partners in a firm belief that the future will be successful for Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank.
The Valtas team has been incredibly fortunate to identify and hire a consulting team of Interim Executive Directors (IED) with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. We are frequently asked what it takes to be a successful Interim Executive Director.
There are many overlapping skills between someone who serves as an executive leader in a nonprofit and a consulting Interim ED or CEO. There are also a few key differences between a regular Executive Director role and an IED. Each nonprofit has some variability and nuance – different types of business models and program delivery, staff size, and funding complexity all impact the role of a nonprofit leader.
