Thresholds Cohort

We recognize that leaving a mission-filled life as a nonprofit executive leader is challenging, at best. Using a cohort experience, Eos Transition Partners offers Thresholds: Life Before and After Retirement, which is three sessions to help baby boomer-age executives transition by providing:

  • An occasion to share with others the joys and anxieties of leaving long-term non-profit work
  • Tools to assess organizational vulnerabilities and steps to take the necessary actions for organizational sustainability
  • Effective practices in preparing for your leadership departure
  • Time to reflect on the personal implications of saying goodbye and embracing a new way of life

The experience will include a one-day session in a relaxed, private environment followed with two half-day cohort gatherings over the following three months. A packet of transition tools and resources will be shared, including materials to share with your Board.

Faculty

The sessions are facilitated by Nancy Jackson, a thought leader long-experienced in guiding hundreds of executives through the transition process. From 2012 to 2018, Nancy and Marianne Hughes designed and lead 12 cohorts of retiring nonprofit executives (totaling about 200 executive directors) through TSNE Missionworks’ “What’s Next” program.

In addition to her expertise on transition best practices, Nancy brings her certified facilitator skills and 25 years of executive-level nonprofit and government experience to this program. For 18 years she co-directed a nonprofit intermediary organization that works to inspire innovation and advance best practices in work with children and adolescents.
