Next Generation Leadership
Fueling your family business future.
In the next 5-10 years, as the baby boomers retire successful succession will become a hot and urgent topic. Family business succession statistics continue to err on the failure vs. success rate, and senior business owners have been to blame.
What about us, the Next Generation? Does the fate of the family business not ultimately land in our hands? So what can we do to change those nasty statistics and contribute to sustainable family business success?
- Already work in the family business
- Are thinking about it
- Already took over management and/or ownership
- Worked in and have left the family business
Next Generation Leadership coaching will take you to a heightened level of personal, professional, and family business success.
Packages & Programs
Depending on where you're at and what you're facing, I provide a few different coaching options:
- Just-in-Time Coaching
- These Boots were made for Walkin' Package
- Structural Integrity Package
- The Deluxe Evolutionary Package
Not sure which option is best? Call me at 250.891.4330 and we'll see what makes the most sense for you.
1. Just-in-Time Coaching
Makes sense if: You are curious about coaching and have short-term goals where a little nudging does the trick. If, for example, you are out of the business but still influence decisions about succession (like me), this is a great way to use an occasional sounding board for identifying concrete steps toward helping your parents be proactive planners!
Commitment: 30-, 60- or 90-minute coaching sessions on an as-needed basis, about once every 3 to 6 weeks.
2. These Boots were made for Walkin' Package
Makes sense if: You have upcoming commitments and important conversations to prepare for, or specific results you'd like to reach. This is about walking the talk with strong support from an accountability partner to get you there.
Commitment: 60-minute coaching session 1 x week for the first month and every two weeks for the second and third month. Minimum 3-month commitment.
3. Structural Integrity Package
Makes sense if: You need to maintain a strong foundation and cracks are starting to seep in. If, for example, you are entering the family business in a management or ownership capacity, you are wrestling with a succession transition, or your acceptance as a leader is a work-in-progress, an outside neutral sounding board is just what you need for some clarity and perspective.
Commitment: 60-minute coaching sessions 2 x month for a minimum of 3 months, ideally for 6-12 months during a transition.
4. The Deluxe Evolutionary Program
Makes sense if: This program is about continuously developing for the better. It's a must if you:
- Are torn between joining the family business or pursuing another direction
- Thinking about leaving the family business but are unsure about what else you could do professionally
- Experiencing a high level of conflict, either with family members or non-family employees
- Have feelings of discontent and sense that something just isn't quite right with where you are in life
Commitment: 60-minute coaching session 2 x month for a minimum of 6 months. We will work through a handbook touching on who you are, what you stand for, and how you envision your ideal future. Your willingness to self-reflect and your commitment to completing the program are essential for your success.
