Presented by Steve McClure and Wendy Sage-Hayward
Change is the only constant in business, and this is doubly true in family enterprise where both the business and family evolve over time. Change can be effective, gradual and fully supported by the family, owners and management, or it can be disruptive and leave resentment and cut-offs. Managing change well is important to building family alignment, commitment and continued progress towards shared goals.
During this one-hour program, Steve McClure and Wendy Sage-Hayward will share experiences of families that have found themselves in times of significant change. They will also discuss the valuable lessons from those who have well-managed succession, transition to non-family leadership, engaging the family in family governance, formalizing business governance, and more.
Important themes include:
Key types of change that family enterprise leaders will want to manage well
What makes change difficult for the individuals involved and how to create a successful transition
Beneficial change tactics for families to navigate difficult transitions
How to gauge your family’s progress through the stages of change
This free, one-hour program includes time for Q&A. Can't attend live? A recording of the webinar will be available for all registrants.
