Family Business Program

Family businesses experience the same challenges as other businesses, but they also encounter unique complexities. Many family businesses throughout the world transition to new generations of leaders. Their success and continuity will depend on the management and leadership effectiveness of those at the top.

The existence of conflicts is common, but the success, and above all the survival of the company depends on how they are handled. If not taken care of properly, they can, not only destroy the business, but the family as well.

Being part of family businesses since I was born, unlike many consultants, I pay a lot of attention to the family component, not just to the technical component in the succession and business development processes.

This program is for individual members of family businesses but recommended for more family members in the business to take part at the same time.


This program seeks to help established, new and aspiring family business leaders understand the dynamics and develop the skills and tools required to leverage the intrinsic strengths of their family business and establish a foundation for long term success.

Participants should realize that having the opportunity to be part of a family business is a unique experience that should be most rewarding.

After completing this program, you will:

  • Understand the “business” of family business.
  • Learn family business best practices through lectures, and case studies of successful family businesses and their leaders, on how they managed their survival, growth, and succession processes.
  • Be able to communicate constructively as a business/family member and manage tensions.
  • Get an approach to succession planning that works for you.
  • Be able to make your own “Self-Assessment” checklist to allow you to evaluate your succession readiness.
  • Remove interpersonal conflicts from the day-to day operations.
  • Be engaged with a shared vision.
  • Define as a family whether someone wants to be involved in the family business or not.
  • Learn to be analytical and objective as you make the right investments and decision for the business, not just for the family.
  • Be able to manage the generation gaps in the way of doing business, combining and respecting experience and wisdom, as well as new trends, technology and enthusiasm.
  • Be able to design the corporate governance structure that is right for the business and the family.
  • Be able to elaborate the key documents your family needs (family pact, will, code of conduct, etc.).

Coaching is not needed when there is something to fix. It works much like it does with professional athletes: the more they are excelling in their careers, the more they need a coach to help them reach their full and true potential.

Mentoring is not coaching or counseling.  It is the relationship between a mentor (an experienced person) who shares knowledge, experience, and advice with a less experienced person, with the purpose of helping the mentee in her/his professional and personal development and become the best version of her/himself.
