When planning for succession in a family business, one critical piece that can often be overlooked is the exiting leader's personal plans for retirement. Stephanie Brun de Pontet addresses this challenge in her new book, Transitioning from the Top: Personal Continuity Planning for the Retiring Family Business Leader, and joins us for this free webinar to share wisdom and stories from retired family business CEOs she interviewed for the book about their transition away from the day to day leadership of their enterprises.
In addition to relaying ideas on how these hard-charging individuals continue to find challenges and purpose that motivate them, Stephanie will describe some tools and provide tips to help leaders at any age prepare themselves for this important transition.
Participants in this webinar will hear more about:
- Why planning for the future can be particularly challenging for successful family business leaders,
- How effective planning benefits the individual leader, the family, the business, and the community,
- Stories of successful transitions and how other CEOs overcame common challenges, and
- A model for planning for the future that considers all of these factors and prepares you for a rewarding transition.
This free, one-hour program includes time for Q&A. A recording of the webinar will be available for all registrants.
