Formerly named Leading Family Enterprises
As an aspiring leader within family enterprise, you’ll discover how to establish your credibility and authority in the business community, among family shareholders, with the board and management team. As an established leader, you’ll explore the complexities of mentoring the next generation and of managing succession and letting go. For all, the program can enable you to better manage the nuanced paradoxes that are characteristic of family business leadership.
This highly interactive program includes lectures with world-class experts on family enterprise, live case studies with leaders of prominent family enterprises and group discussions with peers facing leadership challenges similar to yours. With insights gained from a 360-degree assessment and personalized individual and group coaching, you’ll leave better able to meet the personal, familial and organizational challenges of your dynamic enterprise.
Groups of up to five participants from a family enterprise can be accommodated in each session. Requests for groups of more than five in a single session must be approved by the program’s Academic Director. Please direct your inquiry to the John L. Ward Center for Family Enterprises at firstname.lastname@example.org.
