Transitioning from the founder to a new CEO is by far one of the most difficult transitions an organization can face. It’s incredibly rare to hear of that going well but we found an example of two people who did that with tremendous grace and skill. In today’s episode, we will hear from Ellen Moir, the founder and former CEO of the New Teacher Center and the CEO that followed her, Desmond Blackburn.
The New Teacher Center works with districts to help retain you guessed it...new teachers. They’re in 27 states and over 400 school districts. Not only did Ellen pass along the baton of leadership to Desmond, but more importantly, she also passed along all of her key relationships. If you’re a founder and thinking about retiring or a new CEO following in the footsteps of a founder, this episode is for you.
