Presented by Barb Dartt and David Karofsky
In a recent survey conducted by Wilmington Trust1, 47% of business owners over the age of 65 do not have a specific transition plan. We have found that the sheer complexity of transition planning is often a barrier to creating any plan at all. One of the most effective places to start is by creating a path for welcoming the next generation into the family enterprise.
During this webinar, Barb Dartt and David Karofsky will explore best practices in preparing and educating the next generation to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the organization. Specifically, the program will address:
Identifying what it means to be an effective owner
Overall ownership development goals for the next gen including how and when to start
How to communicate effectively while recognizing and celebrating differences among generations
Establishing criteria for next-gen family members to join the enterprise
How an onboarding rotation program can provide a better understanding of the business
Understanding how decisions are made in the family business
Passing the baton: who needs to let go and who needs to take hold
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.
