  • The responsibility of owning and running a family business is always a heavyweight to bear. Maintaining the business’s longevity while addressing family dynamics and ensuring the survival of a legacy can sometimes be overwhelming. Luckily, this program addresses practical issues related to the longevity of the family businesses and offers family businesses an opportunity to learn and share strategies for sustaining a competitive business and a united family and ownership group.

    Over three days, we will lay the foundations that enable families to begin drafting their Family Constitution, based on the understanding of what makes family businesses different, and the critical importance of building an approach to owning and leading the business together.

    A unique feature of the program is that each participating family will be tutored individually for one hour during the three days by lead international faculty members.

    • Offer families pragmatic frameworks and tools for exploring the rewards, challenges, goals, and strategies for the long-term survival of their family business

    • Assist families in improving their governance, strengthening their ownership team, and initiating work on their Family Constitution

    • Reflect on experiences and strategies with like-minded families facing similar situations

    • Provide customized guidance through private, facilitated family meetings during the program

    • Initiate a work plan for writing a Family Constitution

  • Because the program addresses practical issues related to the longevity of the family enterprise, it is best suited for individuals who have an active role and meaningful interest in planning together with their family. Families attend in teams of two or more individuals from each company, preferably from two generations.

    The first day begins with laying the foundations for the context in which businesses and families operate, before moving to some of the fundamental understandings of family business dynamics, strengths, challenges, and stages of evolution. The second and third days address the need for Family Constitutions and how they cope with change, their different frameworks and what they contain, and finally, the tools families need to begin developing their individual constitution.

    The classroom sessions combine interactive lectures, case discussions, and small group discussions. In addition, each family has a one-hour private facilitated meeting to address their individual issues.
