Real life conversations with other business leaders and inspiring presentations.
Gather around tables throughout the year with other family business leaders and members facing similar challenges for educational presentations by other business families and experienced experts in the field. Learn best practices from those ahead of you on the Journey, connect with kindred spirits, and leave with hope, resources and tools for your next steps.
Decades of values, tradition, and experience form the foundation for family businesses. Each generation faces a more difficult challenge of transitioning to the next. Less than 12% of family businesses successfully transition to the third generation of ownership, even though they account for almost 80% of companies worldwide
The complexity of family businesses requires leadership in the business, in the family, and in the “messy” middle of ongoing transitions which are emotional, relational, and often unclear organizationally due to the overlapping roles.
Due to the importance of the overlapping roles that family business leaders are tasked with, we made leaning into crucial conversations the focus of our events for 2019. Corresponding with the theme of 2019 events, all members will receive Crucial Converstions:Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, by Kerry Patterson.
