I am retiring this year as Sunday school coordinator at our church after a joyful decade in that role. I want to make sure the hand-off to our new coordinator is as smooth as possible — that I offer guidance/help where needed, while giving grace and space for the new coordinator to put her own leadership 'mark' on the program.
My question to teachers/co-ordinators is this: in what specific ways did your predecessor help you grow into your role? How did you wish s/he had helped that s/he didn't help? Or, if something s/he did impede the hand-off and made the path more difficult for you, what specifically do you wish s/he had done differently?
I want to 'end well' and 'send well' and I'd really welcome your input.
