Programme Overview

ADDRESSING FAMILY FIRMS’ UNIQUE CHALLENGES

The three-day programme is designed to create a family business learning experience by helping participants explore new ideas and practice more effective behaviors. This session is taught in executive education format and introduces the latest thinking about family business ownership, governance and leadership and then applies new and more effective ways of communication and listening, planning for the family and business, and governing to support harmony and performance.

The goal is that you will develop new thinking and behaviors to strengthen your family and business leadership, communication and planning. The sessions are designed around the Parallel Planning Process (Carlock and Ward, 2015) designed to help business families plan and implement the transitions of leadership, governance and ownership to the next generation. It is a dynamic approach that integrates and aligns the business’ needs and the family’s expectations using five key planning variables: values, vision, strategy, investment and governance.

  • Family members, those working and not working in the business
  • Founders, successors and non-family CEOs
