Three Turns of an Executive Leader
Episode #58 of the Third Turn Podcast with Mark L. Vincent

Consider this episode an invitation to—for just about 20 minutes— to think ahead to and walk through the very critical and pivotal last 4 years of your organizational leadership. A 20-minute invitation to be walked through key questions, reflection, issues, and opportunities—for you, your board, your next generation leaders, and your organization—relative to transitioning your leadership.

Maybe you’d like to treat this as a mini workshop for yourself (complete with video visuals and audio comments and questions). Maybe you’d like workshop it with your board or board chair; and/or your executive leadership team.
Whichever way or ways you choose, our goal is that you walk away with a clearer understanding of the “4 years remaining” in an executive’s organizational leadership; specific stages for the executive and for the board; inherent challenges and opportunities to recognize and embrace in the process; and an opportunity to begin planning with the end in mind.

As we so often say, transitioning one’s leadership to a successor happens for most of us (albeit a very, very few of us) just once—with an invitation to live, learn, and lean into process while waiting for greater clarity to form out of the mist.

May this 20-minute investment pay big dividends in what we hope is a planful, thoughtful process for you and those with whom you lead and serve—all done with clear vision and for a fruitful and thriving end in mind.
