LEADERSHIP TRANSITIONS – MAKING OR BREAKING AN ORGANISATION (written together with Angelika March)
A leadership transition marks a vulnerable phase; it can either strengthen or damage the sustainability of the organisation. The presenters consider various aspects that interplay in such transitions. Among them is how organisational knowledge must be carried forward for continued impact.
Another aspect lies in the responsibility for succession planning; who is in charge, and how can the transition be conducted in such a way that it contributes toward sustainability? Key spiritual principles are also considered that lead to discernment in the transfer of leadership. These principles are drawn from biblical and contemporary examples.
