Goodbye, Hello: A Generation of Executives Reflects on Retirement and the Future of Services for Children and Youth. (2006). Nancy Jackson and Sharon Vardatira. 18 pp.
We all know that the nonprofit world is heading for a leadership crisis as Baby Boomers retire and are replaced by far less-numerous Gen-Xers. The crisis is expected to be particularly acute for youth service agencies, which came into their own only in the 1970s, and now face losing the execs who founded them. This report includes in-depth interviews with 15 soon-to-be retiring executive directors in New England, and their thoughts on what it will take to make the next generation of leaders job-ready.
