Family Business Development Programme

A family business faces daily issues of succession, family conflict and disputes and to operate effectively it needs to overcome these. The alternative is a business where in-fighting and stagnation drags the performance, growth and development down.

There is a old Lancashire saying; “Clogs to clogs in three generations: the first generation makes it [money/wealth], the second generation saves it and the third generation spends it!”.

Although this is a jaundiced and over simplistic view the bare facts are that many family businesses do not survive 3 generations the core reasons are several.

  • No clear agreed vision, or life aspiration
  • A lack of planning for succession or handing over the reigns
  • Difference of approaches to the development of the business

The main problem is that in many cases the family members are too close to the problem and the issues to identify the causes and the way out of the problems.

But with help all of these problems can be resolved and the family can get on with the job in hand, growing a successful, multi generation, family business.

The Family Business Development Programme is designed specifically to address these key issues.

The Family will:

  • Learn the 3 key questions that every Family Business must answer to be successful
  • Overcome the problems with reaching an agreed vision for the future
  • Identify and address the aspirations and needs of each family member
  • Learn the secrets to fully harness the skills and abilities of all generations within the business
  • Understand how to deal with conflict within the business
  • Plan for succession for the founding generation
  • Create a strategy and action plan for business growth & development
  • Implement ten golden rules that will ensure that your business survives and thrives
