Leadership Development

Although tens of thousands of books are written on the subject, most family businesses struggle to develop strong leaders. John Maxwell said it best, “Leadership is influence – nothing more, nothing less.”

Developing talented leaders you can trust is vital to the health and growth of your business. The Family Business Institute can help you discover the right talent, create the right plan, and develop the best leaders to take your business well into a prosperous future.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Leadership development and integration plans incorporate the skills, mentoring, and knowledge it takes to achieve specific business goals and objectives.

CREATING A LEADERSHIP CULTURE
Organizations emulate their leaders. If the leader can’t or won’t exercise discipline and manage himself, the company’s people and results will reflect that. The organization needs to know who it is collectively, what it stands for, and where it’s headed. The company gets that information from its leader(s). Self management is at the core of creating a leadership culture.
DEVELOPING AND INTEGRATING HIGH POTENTIAL NEXT GENERATION LEADERS
There are several interesting and useful tools to develop “Next Gen” leaders. 360° evaluations, processes for discovering unique talents, psychometric evaluation tools, and other processes can help identify, train, and develop high potential next generation – family or non-family – leaders. It is also useful to dispel many of the misconceptions about developing leaders in family owned businesses. Leadership development plans can be as varied as the families and companies which utilize them. Formal training and special projects are both part of leader development. Other best practices include communications training, self awareness work, the use of “bridge management”, training in making collaborative (versus unilateral) decisions, and others.
