Description

Program Overview
Today, you’re successfully farming together as a family, and you want those successes to continue as the farm business transitions to the next generation. Organizing and executing a shift in management responsibilities involves building even stronger relationships within the family and with key non-family employees, encouraging new leaders to step forward, resolving lingering conflicts and making plans that excite your farm team. By attending this workshop, you will gain the confidence and expertise needed to guide the succession-planning process and create an even stronger business for the future.
