Lay the foundations for your path to continuity
Even when enterprising families are aligned in their desire to pass ownership to the next generation, they don’t always know where to start.
Continuity requires an understanding of the key opportunities and risks that families face as they approach generational transitions and a commitment to addressing them systematically over time. However, many families often “don’t know what they don’t know” about the fundamental building blocks of family enterprise continuity, and aren’t always tracking the considerable time, effort and resources necessary to achieve it. Others may understand the key issues but may not be ready to dive into a full Continuity Audit, or are curious to learn more about continuity planning before committing to a more systematic process.
In LGA’s Continuity Workshop, our advisors lead your family through a customized and interactive learning experience focusing on the key drivers of family enterprise continuity — a foundation for any continuity project.
How does it work?
Each Continuity Workshop is distinct and custom-designed for your family enterprise. It leverages our teaching at top universities around the world and fosters thoughtful engagement in early discussions about governance design and family engagement by asking:
- What makes family enterprises so unique?
- What are the “Three Circles” within a family enterprise (i.e. Business, Ownership and Family) and how do they evolve over time?
- What is governance and how does it support continuity?
- How is governance different within family enterprises?
- How can next-generation family members effectively engage with their family enterprise?
- What are the key opportunities and risks that all families must address if they want to achieve continuity?
How does your family benefit?
Participants will emerge from LGA’s Continuity Workshop with a common language to begin having deeper conversations about the purpose of your wealth, your shared vision for the future, and how to get organized to achieve multi-generational success. Your family will emerge more engaged and motivated, and ready for the important work ahead.
