The psychology of family business succession encompasses the emotional, cognitive, and interpersonal factors that influence how individuals within the family and the business navigate this transition. The personalities of key individuals, the successful management of family conflict, and the ability to transition the organizational culture from one generation to the next play an important role in whether the transition is successful or not.

Shipra and Anjali Seefeldt from Strategic Solutions Consulting, a family business that works with family businesses, will present some of their insights from working with complex family business challenges.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how personalities, power & control issues, and family dynamics influence family business succession planning (positively or negatively)
  • Identify next steps for creating or advancing your succession plan
