We have as our guest this episode of the Nonprofit Leaders Network Podcast, the Reverend Richard Johnson. Richard, who's better known as Richard "Stonefingers" Johnson to fans of his gospel/folk/blues style of music, is the President and CEO of Christian Formation Ministries (CFM for short) based in New Albany, Indiana, and a volunteer chaplain at Henryville Correctional Facility.
The focus of our discussion is the area of succession planning; the impact of a change in leadership on a nonprofit and how leaders themselves can transition out of that leadership role.
Having been involved in prison ministry for over twenty years, the principal focus of Christian Formation Ministries actives is in two key programs - supporting and mentoring those transitioning from prison to free society and a mentoring program for the children of inmates.
Here are some of the main topics from our wide-ranging discussion:
* Recognizing When It’s Time to Turn over the Reins
* Determining What to Look for in a Successor
* Creating a Transition Plan
Recognizing that a Long-Term Commitment will Result in Increased Outcomes
