“…the quick and the dead,” is a commonly used refrain from Tom Peters. Though the comment probably originated as a reference to gunfighters of old, the sentiment rings true when referencing business leaders today---albeit with significantly less carnage.

Leadership is the core of family business. Without a strong, agile, and insightful leader, a business is not likely to prosper and may well be on the path to extinction. Success awards those who are adaptable, who are capable, and who apply extraordinary effort.

Planning for succession is the next chapter for a vibrant business. It is critical to financial security, lasting value, and long-term success. So, what have you done to ensure a lasting legacy?

  • Is your family informed about your succession intentions and do they understand your desires?
  • Have you involved your family in the planning process and do they openly share their hopes for the future?
  • Does your plan include provisions for an ownership transition, financial security, leadership development, and the estate tax?
  • Is your plan flexible and will it adapt to changes in the economy, regulations, consumer tastes, family dynamics, and tax law?
  • And most importantly, are you and your next generation leaders participating in a plan for professional development, and does it include components for formal education, work experience, mentor relationship, and other growth activities?
