Passing the Leadership Baton: A Winning Transition Plan for Your Ministry
by Tom Mullins
Successfully handing off the leadership baton to the next leader is essential to give our organization the best opportunity to thrive after our time of service. A smooth handoff requires meticulous planning and forethought. Yet most leaders put off even thinking about leadership transition until they are faced with a situation where they have no choice but to make a change.
The results of not planning ahead can be devastating for both you and your beloved organization. Passing the Leadership Baton will help you manage the emotional transition yourself while fully supporting the next leader. Creating a seamless succession can be a challenge, but done successfully, it may very well be one of the greatest rewards you’ll experience as a leader.
“We all need to plan for leadership transitions in our churches. Coach [Mullins's]...wisdom and experience in making a successful transition with Todd is going to help you make winning transitions with your team too.”
—Chris Hodges, senior pastor, Church of the Highlands
