Most entrepreneurs have worked a lifetime to build a strong and successful family business. With many years of commitment, energy and passion, they have toiled with a committed partner or family member(s) and other loyal employees who seem like family. As a successful business leader, they feel tired but infallible and still required to ensure their business success.

They have thought of retirement or succession and dream of slowing down to 'smell the roses' and experience life's journey.  There is a nagging question about what to do with the business and how to protect their hard earned equity, which likely represents the retirement fund.  It is "their baby" with many memories, a great sense of satisfaction and the hope of a family member(s) continuing the tradition of successful growth to a higher level.

Usually some early discussions have not been successful, resulting in a variety of wrong assumptions, conflicting thoughts and suggestions.  There may be concern for senior non-family employees or equality regarding children outside the business.  There is little understanding or quality communication about the hopes and dreams of those affected.

If you or your audience is described above, you need to hear Doug Vincent's "5-Star" leadership presentation.

  • Participants will learn to communicate and share their dreams and goals in an open, non-emotional and non-threatening manner. 
  • Individuals will be inspired to "Be a Star" and polish their life-stars to shine brightly.  They'll also be motivated to help others make their stars sparkle.
  • Members of the family and business will experience a positive way to combine individual objectives into a framework that enhances a better understanding and cooperative spirit, enhancing happiness and results.
  • Through a 'Family - Owner - Business' model, everyone will better understand their current and future roles in the ongoing process of business operations, continuity and succession planning. 
  • Ideas to develop a road map for succession and family harmony will result in a stress-free movement to action in an enjoyable and collaborative team environment.
  • The result is less complication, less frustration with more happiness and effective results.
