Family businesses are the cornerstone of most national economies. They can create jobs, spur innovation, and drive superior returns.
But most family businesses fail to last through the third generation. Why are some family businesses able to survive and thrive, while most disappear?
Through extensive research, family business expert Claudio Fernández-Aráoz of global executive search firm Egon Zehnder has found that long-term prosperity for family businesses requires good governance, identifying and developing both family and non-family talent, pursuing disciplined succession, and preserving family gravity.
On November 12, in a live Harvard Business Review webinar, Fernández-Aráoz will share insights on:
•Keys to sustained family business success
•Findings from new research with 28 leading family businesses
•6 traits of strong family businesses
•What family businesses must do to remain healthy and viable over the long term
Fernández-Aráoz will provide examples and case studies from family businesses across the globe and will provide actionable recommendations to increase your family business’s chances of long-term success.
