Leadership is a temporary position. For a limited time, you’ve been granted the honor of leading people.
Whether this position is within a business, non-profit, or a church, one day your time as a leader will come to an end.
What do you do when your leadership position ends? You must exit gracefully.
Leaving a leadership position isn’t always easy.
You may have been shown the door. Maybe you felt God leading you in a different direction. Or it could be you outgrew the leadership position.
Whatever the reason for leaving leadership, the key is to leave on good terms.
1. Inform those you’re working with: The hardest thing in leaving leadership is making the decision to leave. The second hardest is letting the people you’ve lead and worked with know that you’ve made the choice to move on.
