All effective collaborations require alignment around a common purpose.
We help families achieve the continuity of their entrepreneurial legacy
Most of our clients manage a portfolio of operating companies built around a shared entrepreneurial legacy.
They include some of the largest and oldest enterprising families in the United States and Canada, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Their revenues typically range from $250 million to over $100 billion, and they are active across a range of industries and geographies.
What they all have in common is a desire to achieve continuity across generations, and a recognition that past success is no guarantee for the future.
Achieving multi-generational continuity takes considerable time and effort, and every generation needs to develop its own unique plan for growth and renewal – balancing the legacies of the past with the opportunities and challenges of the future.
LGA helps our family business clients invest in continuity by:
- Generating strategic alignment around a shared vision, purpose and values for their operating businesses
- Designing governance systems to oversee and coordinate strategy and leadership across their operating businesses
- Assessing and developing leaders and leadership teams
- Designing efforts to educate, involve, and transition leadership to the next generation
- Facilitating more productive relationships between family members, family employees, and professional staff
- Developing processes for effective risk management
- Educating owners and leaders on the unique characteristics of a Family Business, how they develop predictably over time, and the evolving requirements for long-term success
