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.
At this program, you will:
Explore the crucial issues that families need to address for future business success.
Discuss the strengths and challenges of your family and business relationships.
Recognize the importance of self-understanding in the transition process.
Identify the family dynamics and structure needed to create an effective business succession plan.
Gain a new perspective on conflict and the importance of improving your conflict-resolution skills.
Learn the value of engagement, empowerment and delegation.
Improve your communication skills, which contribute to building stronger relationships and help you move toward agreement on important decisions.
Leave with the beginning of a family team charter that will help you overcome the challenges ahead.
This two-day workshop emphasizes family relationships, communication, the role of key non-family employees and building a strong management team for the future. The faculty instructors will deliver the program in four essential parts. This workshop will not address estate planning, asset transfer and tax management.
