Jenna Hauss started as an intern at ONEgeneration and today she is the President and CEO of this $9 million organization in Southern California. Jenna shares what she's learned about the importance of succession planning and how she views it as a tool for the whole organization, not just executive roles.
"Succession planning is also about replacing key staff, not just executive leadership, but our program directors who are truly carrying the programs. Recognizing internal potential candidates that have leadership ability and giving them the tools and resources that they need."
"We are very selective when it comes to an individual who wants to potentially be on our board. There's a pretty in-depth process. We want to make sure that we're selecting individuals that are a good representation of the work that we do and of our community."
"What we've learned over this past year is that we can only do so much as an organization and the power of collaboration really can create a positive impact."
