Succession Planning Process- Owner Motivation & Perspective

Shareholder attitudes influence all areas of the business. They establish both the limitations and possibilities of business growth and longevity through multiple generations. Having a knowledgeable family business advisor who knows the succession planning process can be invaluable.

Why Is it Important?

  • Shareholder attitudes impact profitability, efficiency, enthusiasm, innovation, customer satisfaction, and the sustainability of success.
  • Relationships are significantly affected by shareholders’ attitude towards the business. These include relationships with family members, key managers, employees, strategic vendors, creditors, manufacturers and franchisers.
  • Shareholders perspective on the business influences employee attitudes. If the perspective of shareholders is me first; the culture and behaviors of the employees will follow that lead.
